Artist's Description

General William Sherman served as a General in the Union Army for which he received great recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy, as well as criticism for the harshness of his “scorched earth” policy.

General Sherman’s “scorched earth” strategy was to destroy anything that might be useful to the enemy, and he achieved this through extensive burning of crops and homesteads, etc., which was rampant throughout the South during the Civil War and was a major factor in the collapse of the Confederacy.

This photograph is of an art work depicting General Sherman at his headquarters during the Civil War and can be seen at the General Sherman Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Thank you to the group “War” for featuring this photograph.

Camera: Canon Rebel XTi 400D
