General William Tecumseh Sherman was one of the most zealous of all Union Generals, and believed firmly in punishing the south, and removing their will to fight by targeting civilian infrastructure.  His methods of warfare later become known as the tactics of total war, or the belief that war isn't only against the troops on the battlefield, but also against the industries and transportation systems that supply them.  He believed firmly in the justice and righteousness of a brutal wall, with the theory being the worse he could make it, the sooner it would be over.  General Sherman captured the imagination of Northern Patriots, and the Popular Press during the Civil War.  Below, we present examples of News Articles on Sherman during the Civil War.
