General Sherman's March to the Sea Todd Groce talked about Union General William Tecumseh Sherman’s background, his “March to the Sea” campaign, and how General Sherman is remembered. He described Sherman’s method as “hard war” rather than total war, and argued that the targets for destruction were carefully selected to diminish Southern resolve to continue the conflict.

“The March to the Sea: Rethinking General Sherman” 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
