It seems this Thread has gotten way Off Topic but to keep your Quotes from General Sherman correct the quote is "If the people raise a howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity-seeking." He was much more destructive in South Carolina than in Georgia, and in fact Loved Savannah and had no wish to destroy Georgia but to do whatever it takes to end the Carnage. When Ordered to do what was necisarry to bring an end to the war he did just that and what was needed. His quote says it all. I am not a great fan of his but I feel that given the broad hand he was, he performed exactly what he was Ordered to do. He broke the back of the Confederacy and helped end the war. If more wars were fought this way without the Politicians getting in the way, most would not last long!
