What kind of war could general sherman declare?

William Tecumseh Sherman began his Civil War career as a Colonel of the 13th US Infantry Regiment and ended his career as the Commanding General of the United States army. He is best known for you actions in the Civil War, where his performance was mixed. Still, his March to the Sea in 1864 was a success in its goal to cripple the Confederate's ability to wage war. His brutal and devastating method of waging war ("Hard War" he called it) remains controversial to this day.

Can you use Ruin Queen of Oblivion's effect more than once since its effect is that if this monster successfully destroys your opponents monster it gets to attack once again in a row?

The 'once more' bit is restricting you to using this effect once only in a turn. Even if she destroys another monster with her next attack, she cannot declare a third attack.

What was the difference between Sherman and Johnston surrender terms to Grant's and lee?

Grant told Lee that if his men handed in their weapons and went home, they would not be persecuted. These were simply his terms for the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia. Sherman told Johnston that the cabinet was willing to negotiate with the existing Southern state governments in respect of all Confederate units, and he set out the terms under which the Southern sector would live. This was a Peace Treaty, and it went far beyond what any General was allowed to authorise. Grant immediately ordered Sherman to cancel it and declare war again. Johnston sensibly re-surrendered on the same terms Grant had given Lee.

What constituency in the UK is the first to declare the election results?

At the 2010 general election, the constituency ofHoughtonand Sunderland South was the first constituency to declare a result. Prior to this, the now-abolished constituency of Sunderland South (an old constituency from which the new one was largely made) had been first to declare in 2005, 2001, 1997 and 1992.As the 2015 general election boundaries will be the same as the ones used in 2010 following the Coalition's postponement of the planned boundary review until 2018, it is highly likely Sunderland South will again be first to declare. All three Sunderland seats traditionally declare very early; usually within two hours of polls closing, before meaningful results begin to trickle in.The most recent constituency other than Sunderland South to declare first was Torbay, at the 1987 general election. By 1997, Torbay had slipped considerably, being the 243rd seat to declare that year.
