Sherman's March to the Sea, Georgia, November and December 1864
One of the legendary campaigns of the Civil War. Sherman's armies eschewed actual combat but waged a fierce psychological war in the heart of the Confederacy. Rebel general Richard Ewell claimed that "the road to glory cannot be followed with too much bagage." Oddly enough, Sherman's supposedly stripped down columns marched toward Savannah and glory with close to 6000 wagons and ambulances.
