What southern city did General Sherman burn in the civil war?

Sherman's "March to the Sea" went right through the heart of Atlanta, GA -- he burned everything in his path, thus demonstrating a concept of total war. The concept essentially means that Sherman brought the horrors of war, such as hunger, violence, terror, and starvation straight to the Southern homefront through big-time means of destruction. Remember the Rebels stayed in the game early on because of their fighting spirit, in their own battle for states' rights and whatnot. This total war was an attempt to make these Southerners HATE WAR!


William T Sherman marched his Union troops through Georgia to the sea it was clear that?

Major General William T. Sherman's march from Atlanta to Savannah in 1864 is referred to as the so-called "March to the Sea". It is an error to term the battle tactics of Sherman as one of total war or total destruction. Sherman destroyed crops and livestock that were potential supplies of the Confederate army. Total warfare is the term used to describe WW 2. There, civilian cities were targets for destruction. All the major powers in WW 2 resorted to total destruction as a means to demoralize the enemy and also to kill potential soldiers. Of course, the destruction also targeted factories and farmlands.
