        Week 36 | 37 Weeks: Sherman on the March

        Learn how, within seven months, Sherman has broken both the South's industry and its will to wage war in Week 36 of 37 Weeks: Sherman on the March. It is the final week of 1864. Atlanta, the South’s industrial hub, is decimated, the damage totaling nearly $100 million in 1864 dollars. In forcing on the Confederacy “the hard hand of war,” Sherman proves the South cannot be protected; public confidence in the Confederate government collapses. Sherman’s final blow is to lead his army through South Carolina and beyond, the heartland of secession.
