Description

You might as well try to put out the burning flames of a house with a squirt gun, I think it is to be a long war, longer than any politician thinks. My aim was, to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their innermost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. - William Tecumseh Sherman Sherman is not only a great soldier, but a great man. He is one of the very great men in our country's history. He is an orator with few superiors. As a writer his is among the first. As a general I know of no man I would put above him. Above all, he has a fine character so frank, so sincere, so outspoken, so genuine. There is not a false line in Sherman's character, nothing to regret. Ulysses S. Grant Sherman understood that in a modern war, fought between whole societies and fought over great principles and ideas, you have to defeat the people, not just the army... What Sherman did was bring a kind of brutality to warfare that for all intents and purposes had never been seen before, and yet at the same time a kind of gentleness that had never been seen before, either. - William A. Bryne, Ph. D. Pensacola Civil War Round Table, March 4, 1993.show more
