You're correct that Sherman was superintendent of Louisiana Seminary (pedecessor to my L.S.U.) but I believe it was in Pineville just across the Red River. I agree with the majority of posts in that the History Channel did a good job, didn't confuse the facts, etc. As one of my my many tangential comments, L.S.U. got the name Tigers from the LA ANV regiments in the late 1900's.

Am I mistaken or did I read somewhere that Sherman cried when he heard that the southern states had succeeded. If Sherman have a deep affinity for the south how does one understand his tactics during his Georgia/South Carolina campaigns only that they were the only methods available to him in speeding the end of the war without increasing the loss of lives.
