Actually that was one of my gripes to the program it implied that was the end of it but it wasn't.  Remember there were mines at Ft. Mcalister afterwards and again Sherman used prisoners to clear mines.

The complexion of the war took a decided turn for the worse in 1864 compared to the earlier years, not saying this was the cause, in fact the biggest culprit was the treatment of black soldiers who were captured, but Sherman's actions were one in a host of sticks placed on the bonfire of the black flag.
