Both were doing their job. Both were good at their job.  After reading Sherman's Memiors  I have a better picture of who he was . 



very well said Miss Susan. as you said, i think i do have a one dimensional view of the two men. i was raised as you said, Lee good, Sherman bad. ive never read Shermans memoirs but i think if i did i MIGHT look at him differently. not a fan of Sherman but id be willing to give it a read
