📝Memoirs Of General Sherman 2nd Edition Revised And Corrected Illustrated 2 Volumes In One Book Synopsis : Includes Civil War Map and Illustrations Pack - 224 battle plans, campaign maps and detailed analyses of actions spanning the entire period of hostilities. Among the greatest memoirs ever produced during the 19th Century; and a classic of American Literature, the autobiography of General William Tecumseh Sherman is a fantastic read that reveals not only his experiences of the Civil War but Sherman as a man. Not Just a book for military buffs Sherman paints a picture of himself and his contemporaries that does not always fit with preconceptions; not an unfeeling monster who ignored the cost of the war that he pursued: “I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” A firm and loyal friend to those who stuck by him, especially his close adherent the future President U.S. Grant of whom he wrote; “Grant stood by me when I was crazy and I stood by him when he was drunk and now we stand by each other.” However, perhaps understandably the majority of the memoirs relate to his great achievements as a soldier during the upheavals of the Civil War. They are as detailed and vivid as any other recollections written of the Civil War and the author displays a rare knack of explaining the operations in light of the wider struggle. Highly recommended. This edition of the great General’s memoirs is the second edition which was revised and amended from the first after inaccuracies had been corrected and as such is the definitive article.

📒William Tecumseh Sherman And The Settlement Of The West ✍ Robert G. Athearn
📝William Tecumseh Sherman and the Settlement of the West Book Synopsis : William Tecumseh Sherman is known primarily for having cut a swath of destruction through Georgia and the Carolinas during the Civil War. From the fame of these years, however, he moved into an eighteen-year phase of “insuring the tranquility” of the vast region of the American West. As commander of the Division of the Missouri from 1865 to 1869 and General of the Army of the United States under President Grant from 1869 to 1883, Sherman facilitated expansion and settlement in the West while suppressing the raids of the Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Kiowa, Comanche, and Crow Indians. Robert G. Athearn explores Sherman’s and his army’s roles in the settling of the West, especially within the broad framework of railroad construction, Indian policy, political infighting, and popular opinion.
📒William Tecumseh Sherman In The Service Of My Country A Life ✍ James Lee McDonough
📝William Tecumseh Sherman In the Service of My Country A Life Book Synopsis : The New York Times best-selling biography of one of America’s most storied military figures. General Sherman’s 1864 burning of Atlanta solidified his legacy as a ruthless leader. Yet Sherman proved far more complex than his legendary military tactics reveal. James Lee McDonough offers fresh insight into a man tormented by the fear that history would pass him by, who was plagued by personal debts, and who lived much of his life separated from his family. As a soldier, Sherman evolved from a spirited student at West Point into a general who steered the Civil War’s most decisive campaigns, rendered here in graphic detail. Lamenting casualties, Sherman sought the war’s swift end by devastating Southern resources in the Carolinas and on his famous March to the Sea. This meticulously researched biography explores Sherman’s warm friendship with Ulysses S. Grant, his strained relationship with his wife, Ellen, and his unassuageable grief over the death of his young son, Willy. The result is a remarkable, comprehensive life of an American icon whose legacy resonates to this day.
📒Memoirs Of General William Tecumseh Sherman Complete ✍ General William Tecumseh Sherman
📝Memoirs of General William Tecumseh Sherman Complete Book Synopsis : According to Cothren, in his "History of Ancient Woodbury, Connecticut," the Sherman family came from Dedham, Essex County, England. The first recorded name is of Edmond Sherman, with his three sons, Edmond, Samuel, and John, who were at Boston before 1636; and farther it is distinctly recorded that Hon. Samuel Sherman, Rev. John, his brother, and Captain John, his first cousin, arrived from Dedham, Essex County, England, in 1634. Samuel afterward married Sarah Mitchell, who had come (in the same ship) from England, and finally settled at Stratford, Connecticut. The other two (Johns) located at Watertown, Massachusetts. From Captain John Sherman are descended Roger Sherman, the signer of the Declaration of Independence, Hon. William M. Evarts, the Messrs. Hoar, of Massachusetts, and many others of national fame. Our own family are descended from the Hon. Samuel Sherman and his son; the Rev. John, who was born in 1650-'51; then another John, born in 1687; then Judge Daniel, born in 1721; then Taylor Sherman, our grandfather, who was born in 1758. Taylor Sherman was a lawyer and judge in Norwalk, Connecticut, where he resided until his death, May 4, 1815; leaving a widow, Betsey Stoddard Sherman, and three children, Charles R. (our father), Daniel, and Betsey. When the State of Connecticut, in 1786, ceded to the United States her claim to the western part of her public domain, as defined by her Royal Charter, she reserved a large district in what is now northern Ohio, a portion of which (five hundred thousand acres) composed the "Fire-Land District," which was set apart to indemnify the parties who had lost property in Connecticut by the raids of Generals Arnold, Tryon, and others during the latter part of the Revolutionary War. Our grandfather, Judge Taylor Sherman, was one of the commissioners appointed by the State of Connecticut to quiet the Indian title, and to survey and subdivide this Fire-Land District, which includes the present counties of Huron and Erie. In his capacity as commissioner he made several trips to Ohio in the early part of this century, and it is supposed that he then contracted the disease which proved fatal. For his labor and losses he received a title to two sections of land, which fact was probably the prime cause of the migration of our family to the West. My father received a good education, and was admitted to the bar at Norwalk, Connecticut, where, in 1810, he, at twenty years of age, married Mary Hoyt, also of Norwalk, and at once migrated to Ohio, leaving his wife (my mother) for a time. His first purpose was to settle at Zanesville, Ohio, but he finally chose Lancaster, Fairfield County, where he at once engaged in the practice of his profession. In 1811 he returned to Norwalk, where, meantime, was born Charles Taylor Sherman, the eldest of the family, who with his mother was carried to Ohio on horseback. Judge Taylor Sherman's family remained in Norwalk till 1815, when his death led to the emigration of the remainder of the family, viz., of Uncle Daniel Sherman, who settled at Monroeville, Ohio, as a farmer, where he lived and died quite recently, leaving children and grandchildren; and an aunt, Betsey, who married Judge Parker, of Mansfield, and died in 1851, leaving children and grandchildren; also Grandmother Elizabeth Stoddard Sherman, who resided with her daughter, Mrs. Betsey Parker, in Mansfield until her death, August 1,1848.
📒Sherman S Civil War ✍ Brooks D. Simpson
📝Sherman s Civil War Book Synopsis : The first major modern edition of the wartime correspondence of General William T. Sherman, this volume features more than 400 letters written between the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and the day Sherman bade farewell to his troops in 1865. Together, they trace Sherman's rise from obscurity to become one of the Union's most famous and effective warriors. Arranged chronologically and grouped into chapters that correspond to significant phases in Sherman's life, the letters--many of which have never before been published--reveal Sherman's thoughts on politics, military operations, slavery and emancipation, the South, and daily life in the Union army, as well as his reactions to such important figures as General Ulysses S. Grant and President Lincoln. Lively, frank, opinionated, discerning, and occasionally extremely wrong-headed, these letters mirror the colorful personality and complex mentality of the man who wrote them. They offer the reader an invaluable glimpse of the Civil War as Sherman saw it.
📒Citizen Sherman ✍ Michael Fellman
📝Citizen Sherman Book Synopsis : A portrait of the Civil War general describes his outrage at secession attempts, his strategies that were based on psychological tactics, the contradictions that marked his life, and his postwar achievements
📒The Destructive War ✍ Charles Royster
📝The Destructive War Book Synopsis : From the moment the Civil War began, partisans on both sides were calling not just for victory but for extermination. And both sides found leaders who would oblige. In this vivid and fearfully persuasive book, Charles Royster looks at William Tecumseh Sherman and Stonewall Jackson, the men who came to embody the apocalyptic passions of North and South, and re-creates their characters, their strategies, and the feelings they inspired in their countrymen. At once an incisive dual biography, hypnotically engrossing military history, and a cautionary examination of the American penchant for patriotic bloodshed, The Destructive War is a work of enormous power. From the Trade Paperback edition.
📒Home Letters Of General Sherman ✍ William Tecumseh Sherman
📝Home Letters of General Sherman Book Synopsis : Who was William Tecumseh Sherman? Before the American Civil War, he was an obscure military man. In the early days of the conflict, he was considered by some to be insane. At the end of the war, he was considered one of America's greatest heroes and generals. Brilliant, erratic, and a force of nature, Sherman cut a swath across the South that is now a part of world history. In these intimate letters to family, you see a side of Sherman you perhaps have not seen before. From a young man writing to his future wife, to the general in charge of an army, to the man in his last years, these are the private letters Sherman sent home. This collection was passed on to Marc Antony DeWolfe Howe (of the Atlantic Monthly) by Sherman's daughter. Here are his opinions on politics and politicians, his fellow generals, his friend Grant, and the horrors of war. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.
