I'll be the first to admit I could use some enlightening. When I asked the question about total war, I was thinking specifically about Sherman's campaign November and December 1864, which, it's true, is one part of the war. It fit the idea of making war not just against the opposing army but against the civilians, specifically civilian property. If compared to, say, the Nazi Army in WWII, yes, the American Civil War was tame.
