        Sherman's March

        Learn about the march through Georgia by General William Tecumseh Sherman in this excerpt from The Civil War: A Film by Ken Burns. In late 1864, Sherman decides to march his army from Atlanta to Savannah, living off the land, and destroying everything along the way that could aid the Confederate army. On the march, Sherman's army causes $100 million of damage "the South would never forget." John Bell Hood moves his forces into Tennessee, and at the Battle of Franklin clashes with Union troops under General George Thomas.
