It's also important to remember what the men of the 15 Corps did in Savannah... it started w/ one Regt and spread throughout the whole Army. Men started whittling and made toys for the children of the city. I believe I've seen a number of 30,000 toys distributed. THey were delived by ordnance wagon handed out by a Yank dressed as Santa.

I remember reading a Sgt mentioning it. He was a touch bitter having lost all but a couple of his freinds to the war. "They may hate us but they know who gave them Christmas. And they will hate us all the more because it was not their fathers."
