$24.99

Title: General W. T. Sherman.

Photographer: Unknown.
Engraver: Unknown.
Publisher: Patterson & Neilson, New York.
Source: Battles of America by Sea and Land with Biographies of Naval and Military Commanders.
Date: 1878.
Size: approx. 8 1/8 x 11 inches.

Description: Original steel-plate engraved print of General William Tecumseh Sherman (1820 – 1891). Sherman was an American soldier, businessman, educator, & author. He served as a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War (1861–65), for which he received recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy as well as criticism for the harshness of the “scorched earth” policies he implemented in conducting total war against the Confederate States.

Sherman first saw action in the First Battle of Bull Run and then Kentucky in 1861. He served under General Ulysses S. Grant in 1862 and 1863 during the battles of forts Henry and Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh, the campaigns that led to the fall of the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River, and the Chattanooga Campaign, which culminated with the routing of the Confederate armies in the state of Tennessee. In 1864, Sherman succeeded Grant as the Union commander in the western theater of the war. He proceeded to lead his troops to the capture of the city of Atlanta, a military success that contributed to the re-election of Abraham Lincoln. Sherman's subsequent march through Georgia and the Carolinas further undermined the Confederacy's ability to continue fighting. He accepted the surrender of all the Confederate armies in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida in April 1865, after having been present at most major military engagements in the western theater.

Condition: Very Good –
Some browning/foxing. Slight water stains to the bottom corners.
