The canal was especially important for transportation of supplies, just as the Erie Canal is so essential to bring to market the grain of the West . . . .

er the defeat of Hardee at Averasboro, Sherman believed he would meet with no more serious opposition in his march to Goldsboro. He issued orders accordingly. This sense of security proved almost fatal to Sherman's army, for at that moment, Johnston, who had come down from Smithfield, N.
