William Tecumseh Sherman

The epic story of Sherman’s assault on Atlanta described intimately here.

I always try to read a nonfiction account of each place I’m visiting. I believe it helps me understand a place better than just by superficially browsing a travel guide. It was surreal to read this while in Atlanta, and even at one point, reading about a march on Howell Mill road, while I was walking on Howell Mill Road reading the book on my iPOD!

Read JUN/JUL13.
