Willliam Tecumseh Sherman was the General you inquire about. He coined the phrase ( War is Hell!) and certainly made it so for the Confederates during his Georgia campaign where in part the Army raided civilian stores, warehouses, etc as they were cut off from supply lines- so ( lived off the country)- and then smashed and burned the (Surplus part). The campaign inspired the song ( marching through Georgia) needless to say unpopular in the South. Sherman"s march of destruction also figured in the Civil War novel and film- Gone with the Wind! Weather and War are frequent metaphors- of which the Desert Storm is only a recent example.

What were the objectives of sherman's march?

To destroy everything in the South. They had a policy of 'total war'--meaning, they weren't going to stop until they damaged or destroyed everything they could get to. It was to completely devastate the South, and make it the biggest loss they could get for them. The more that was destroyed, the more they were going to have to clean up after the war, and the harder it was going to be on the Southern states.
