PART XIII.  GENERAL SHERMAN'S ATROCITIES AND WAR CRIMES 
Unit Introduction: In Part 13 we will briefly examine a few of the atrocities and war crimes that General Sherman committed against the people of Georgia.  Sherman's famous march to the sea will live in infamy as one of the greats acts of in-human depravity in his quest for "total war" against the innocents.  The untold suffering could take volumes to report.  Presented here just a few of the criminal acts.
 
Unit Objective: To develop an awareness of the war crimes, the scope of destruction and of terror that Sherman's troops perpetrated on the non-combatant citizens of Georgia.
