Poe found the old Confederate line of defense of too great extent to be held by such a force as Sherman intended to leave as garrison of the town. Consequently, he selected a new line of much shorte back-ground are the ruins of the State Armory at Columbia, South Carolina. This was burned as Sherman's troops passed through the city on their famous march through the Carolinas, February, 1865. The photographer, bringing up the rear, has preserved the result of Sherman's work, which is typical of that done by him all along the line of march to render useless to the Confederate armies in the Savannah River. A few days before the Confederate guns had frowned darkly from the parapet at Sherman's bummers, who could see the smoke of the Federal gunboats waiting to welcome them just beyond. With Sherman looking proudly on, the footsore and hungry soldiers rushed forward to the attack, and the Stars and Stripes were soon floating over this vast barrier between them and the sea. The nex
e Fort is at the end of Peach Tree Street, Atlanta, to the north of the city. Sherman had just taken possession, and the man at the left is a cavalryman of his forcidential candidate for the second time. He had many enemies. But the news of Sherman's capture of Atlanta helped to restore confidence, and to insure the continuat taken photographs. A view of Fort McAllister recalls a closing incident of Sherman's dramatic march from Atlanta to the sea. The veterans had for weeks been trams which were bringing from New York, under appointment made months back by General Sherman, the much-needed supplies. But between the boys and the food lay the grimed to take them? The assault was made under the immediate inspection of General Sherman, who realized the importance of getting at once into connection with the fft bread. The following day, which happened to be the 25th of December, General Sherman was able to report to President Lincoln that he had secured for him, or fo

The Fifth Company of the Washington Artillery took part in the closely contested Battle of Shiloh. The Confederates defeated Sherman's troops in the early morning, and by night were in possession of all the Federal camps save one. The Washington Artillery served their guns handsomely and helped materially in forcing the Federals back to the bank of the river. The timely arrwhich it held for several years, of holding and operating on interior lines. Its communications were held intact, whereas those of the Federals, as in the case of Grant's advance by way of the Wilderness, were often in danger. It was not until Sherman made his great march to the sea across Georgia, a march which Colonel Henderson, the noted English writer on strategy, says would have been impossible had not a Federal fleet been ready to receive him when he reached the Atlantic, that the South

Their shoes — perhaps taken in sheer necessity from the dead on the field — worn and dusty as we see them, were unquestionably the envy of many of their less fortunate comrades. Lee could only make his daring invasion of the North in 1863 by severing his connection with any base of supplies; and, unlike Sherman in his march to the sea, he had no friendly force waiting to receive him should he prove able to overcome the powerful army that opposed him. Never, says Eggleston, anywhere did soldiers give a better account of themselves. The memory of their heroism is the common heritage of all the people of the great Republic. made are responsible for considerable lack of information as to the strength and losses of the Confederate army.

The sight of Sherman maintaining railroad and telegraphic communicd still Johnston's army was undefeated, while Sherman had weakened his army by guarding a long lineoduces a novel element into the question, for Sherman abandoned Hood's army as a first objective, ae's army instead. It will be remembered that Sherman had difficulty in getting consent from Grant,to ruin Hood's army first.

o advance with his raw and unorganized troops on Beauregard at Manassas. The plan for the battle which he adopted on the night of July 18th was, according to General Sherman, one of the best formed during the entire war. But it failed because, even before he began his attack, Johnston with a good part of his troops had already joibrose E. Burnside, who, a year and five months later, was to figure in a far greater and far more disastrous battle, not many miles from this same spot; and William T. Sherman, who was to achieve a greater renown in the coming war. On the Southern side we find equally striking characters. Prelude to the combat-blackburn's Fnd boys were stretched upon the green.

Before Prentiss could form his lines Hardee's shells began bursting around him, but he was soon ready and, though pressed back for half a mile in the next two or three hours, his men fought like heroes. Meanwhile the further Confederate advance under Bragg, Polk, and Breckinridge was extending all along the line in front of the Federal camps. The second Federal force to encounter the fury of the oncoming foe was the division of General W. T. Sherman, which was cut to pieces and disorganized, but only after it had inflicted frightful loss on the Confederate army. General Grant, as we have noted, spent the night at Savannah, a town nine miles by way of the river from Pittsburg Landing. As he sat at breakfast, he heard the distant boom of cannon and he quickly realized that Johnston's army had attacked his own at the Landing. Instantly he took a boat and started for the scene of the conflict. At Crump's Landing, about half wa

Sherman had little to do at Memphis during the summer and autumn of 1862. on December 20th he left the city for the Yazoo River to take part in Grant's first movement against Vicksburg. The city only a siege could take--Vicksburg, Mississippi the evacuation o

Below, we see the city of Richmond from afar, with the Capitol standing out boldly on the hill. McClellan was not destined to reach this coveted goal, and it would not have meant the fall of the Confederacy had he then done so. When Lincoln entered the building in 1865, the Confederacy had been beaten as much by the blockade as by the operations of Grant and Sherman with vastly superior forces.
