Meet General William Tecumseh Sherman, one of the American Union Army’s most relied upon generals during the American Civil War (1861 – 1865).  He led the Union Army in its decisive battles against the Confederates, marching through the states of Georgia and the two Carolinas.  His campaigns were decisive in the Union’s favor as he delivered major blows to the South.  His march through Georgia is remembered in an American civil war / folklore song entitled, “Marching through Georgia.”  The song is sung by many law enforcement bands worldwide, probably without knowing the background of the song.  He later took part in various wars against the Native Americans.  Sherman passed away on 14 February 1891.  The general was known for his toughness and power, from his looks you fear the idea of seeing him in person and looking him in the eyes.
