Memoirs of General William T. Sherman by William T Sherman( Book )
59 editions published between 1875 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1875, General William T. Sherman's memoir was one of the first from the Civil War, and was offered to the public because, as Sherman wrote in his dedication, "no satisfactory history" of the war was yet available. Although the Memoirs have been revised and corrected many times over the years, Sherman, famously, never changed the original text of his recollections. He was not an historian, he said, and invited "any witness who may disagree with me should publish his own version of [the] facts'" HarperTorch brings great works of non-fiction and the dramatic arts to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

Recollections of California, 1846-1861 by William T Sherman( Book )
2 editions published in 1945 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891) of Ohio won military fame as one of the greatest Union generals in the Civil War. His association with California began when he served as an aide to Generals Philip Kearny and Richard Barnes Mason during the Mexican War. He remained in California as an adjutant to General Persifor Smith. Sherman's military tour in California ended in January 1850, but he resigned his Army commission in 1853 and returned to California as manager of a new bank. Barring a brief trip east to bring his wife and daughter to their new home in San Francisco, Sherman remained until 1857. Recollections of California (1945) contains extracts from Sherman's published Memoirs dealing with his life in California as well as two letters written by Sherman from Monterey in 1848. These cover his voyage round the Horn and landing in Monterey and military missions to Los Angeles and San Francisco. He discusses the Army's problems of establishing military rule and recalls the discovery of gold, which transformed the military mission and his own life. Sherman chronicles his part in Governor Mason's historic inspection trip to the gold fields near Sutter's Fort in 1848 as well as his own business ventures of the time: a store at Coloma, surveying a channel through Suisan Bay, a ranch at Cosumnes River, and Sacramento land speculations. He describes San Francisco and the flood of immigrants to California, 1848-1849. From his later residence, he recalls the bank run of 1855 and the Vigilance Committee crisis of 1856. The excerpts end with Sherman's recollections of his life as attorney and educator, 1857-1861, before the Civil War called him back to military life
