Supplies weren't really a problem at Savannah; things didn't really start to get tight until well into the Carolinas.  There is ample anecdotal & literary evidence of Shermans men walking out of their shoes; theyt were rarely hungry or w/out ammo.  The sheer mileage they covered had them wearing their clothing out...

The evidence was often mentioned during the Grand Review... as a note NC was kind enough to provide enough uniform trousers to cover the tail ends of about 2/3 of the AoT.
