Eric Campbell describes the activities of the Union Army in the Shenandoah Valley in 1864 as they moved through the region and burned anything that could be of use to the Confederates. He talked about how “total war,” such as burning civilian crops, was an uncommon tactic at that point, and some soldiers found it difficult to carry out.

This was part of the four-day conference titled “Atlanta, the Shenandoah, and the Turn to Total War,” held at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and Conference Center. close
