Editorial Reviews

Review

"A worthy addition to the burgeoning literature focusing on the social and cultural aspects of the Civil War. Concise yet thoroughly researched, it contributes fresh, thought-provoking insights into a long-neglected area of study: the interaction between General William T. Sherman's soldiers and southern civilians, black and white, male and female, during his march through the Carolinas." -- "The South Carolina Historical Magazine"

Format: Hardcover
This is a very condensed book, mainly dealing with how the war, ( Sherman's March) affected the people in the path of Shermans army. Mrs. Campbell (the author, and a professor of history) uses extensive footnotes, and numerous sources, from a wide spectrum of people, and authors. One thing Mrs. Campbell bears on, is how Shermans march affected the African-American people, and how it differed with it's affect on the white people; and the differences in effect it had on the moral of the people, versus the effect it had on the Confederate soldiers.
If you're new to Shermans March, this is a good book to start with. It's an excellent, quick view of the effect on the Southern people.
If you've read extensively, on Sherman March, this is an excellent book, that adds to your knowledge.
I also recomment, "Sherman's March"-Richard Wheeler; "Shermans March"-Burke Davis; as well as Shermans March through the Carolina's"- John G. Barrett.

Campbell makes a compelling argument in her differentiation between Sherman's march South to the sea which was relatively tame in comparison to his march North from the sea that was indicative of Total War or the Hard Hand of War as Grimsley calls it. Campbell's observations regarding the attitude of slaves during the occupation does not always mesh with the brutality often expressed by Douglas, Jacobs, and other slaves that escaped to the North prior to the war. Campbell observes that many of the slaves viewed Northern soldiers with greater contempt than that which they held their Southern owners. This book does raise serious questions to the amount of sensationalism that accompanied some of these earlier inflammatory writings.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is what happens when 21st. Century feminist thinking trys to layer itself over the 19th. Century and the American Civil War.

Basicly the book deals with the abuse of white southern women, black women and the wanton destruction of property by General Sherman's campaign through the Southern heart land in 1864. Using limited sources the author builds a case of excessive violence, rape and destruction of property. Gen. Sherman's campaign is well documented and know to historians and although there obviously were examples of what Prof. Campbell described it was not the normal standard of behaviour of Gen. Sherman's Army of 61K.

I have no doubt that the examples given in this text are factualy true but the historicaly records as well as personal diaries and letters that have survived strongly indicate that these atrocities toward Souther civilians or slave were the norm.
