today’s picture: Union General William T. Sherman


Union General William T. Sherman
George N. Barnard, official photographer of the Chief Engineer’s Office, photographed Union General William T. Sherman on horseback at Federal Fort No. 7 in Atlanta, Georgia sometime between September and November 1864. After forcing General John B. Hood to abandon the munitions center of the Confederacy, Sherman remained in Atlanta, resting his war-worn men and accumulating supplies, for nearly two and a half months.
