J Harold:

Suspect Johan is on the road again. My understanding is that there was a unit of pioneers (brigade?)and, when Sherman took off for Savannah and points north, he redistributed the pioneer troops into smaller groups.

Sherman very well understood the value of pioneers -- he just wanted them distributed among his columns. Varying interpretations of the word "disbanded" are probably the reason for your question
