William Tecumseh Sherman
George Watts Hill Alumni Center’s Royall Room
Monday, Dec. 1 | 7-9 p.m.
By December of 1864, Major-General William T. Sherman and his army were more than halfway to Savannah from Atlanta. His March to the Sea was one of several campaigns that made him one of the great generals of the American Civil War. However, in much of the American South, he is vilified. During this session, we’ll analyze the life and career of a man who not only burned his way across Georgia and South Carolina, but into the collective consciousness of countless Southern generations.
