The Cover: Major General William Tecumseh Sherman, on a black horse, rides with his staff past a group of freed slaves in this painting of Sherman's march to the sea by artist A.J. Carlin. The wholesale destruction of the land's resources by Sherman's troops spread a sense of helplessness through the Confederacy, portending the end of the War.
