As they moved from Atlanta to Savannah - destroying homes, buildings, and crops; killing livestock; and consuming supplies - Sherman and the Union army ignited not only southern property, but also imaginations, in both the North and the South. By the time of the general's death in 1891, when one said "The March," no explanation was required. That remains true today."--BOOK JACKET.
