    Sherman's March to the Sea

    Anne Sarah Rubin talked about Union General William Tecumseh Sherman’s March to the Sea and the concept of “civilized war.” In November and December of 1864, General Sherman marched his troops from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia. According to Rubin, the destruction wrought along the way served as a precedent for the “total war” tactics of later conflicts. However, General Sherman established a code of conduct for his troops, which Professor Rubin argued gave the Union Army “moral cover” for their actions during the march. 

    This was a portion of the 2014 Civil War Symposium hosted by the U.S. Capitol Historical Society.
