Sherman's March Through The South (3): The March To The Sea

In order to confuse the Confederate forces, Sherman split his troops into two different directions, threatening Macon, to the West, or Savannah, to the East.  Sherman’s forces left a swath of destruction wherever they went, with looting and burning.  What made Sherman so bitter towards the South wasn’t slavery, but secession.  After Atlanta, Sherman moved his forces to capture Savannah.
