Thank you Cleburne, it is a pleasure when someone else is actually aware of historical context.

Some like to believe history happens in a vacuum or starts & stops w/ the US.

To any who would think Sherman the first to engage in total war ask the Cherokee or the Seminole about forced relocation & total war. All w/in memory of those officers on both sides. The number of civilian deaths? Then compare that to ANY other military campaign through enemy territory. Sherman and his men were absolute saints in comparison to the majority you can compare them to.
