Sherman's March Through The South (4): Crossing The Swamps, And Rivers Bridge - Episode 4


Like he did in Georgia, Sherman moved his army around in South Carolina, in order to confuse the Confederate defenders.  Possible targets for Sherman included Augusta, G.A., Charleston, S.C., or Columbia, S.C.  After crossing the Salkehatchie River, Sherman’s forces ran into over two thousand Confederate defenders at River’s Bridge.
