Reign Of Terror In The South

On this day in 1864, Gen. William T. Sherman, and his yankee army, entered the city of Atlanta, after the defeat and evacuation of Confederate forces under John B. Hood. Sherman's entrance in Atlanta marked a major milestone in his march to the sea. His entire campaign is still taught to cadets at West Point, as a prime example of how to break the enemy's will to fight.

And break the will it did. With Atlanta captured and destroyed the backbone of the Confederacy was broken. It is also a horrific example of the yankee's war policy. By Sherman's orders women and children, as well as the soldiers, were killed, wounded, and otherwise molested. This unbiblical action toward non-combatants is despicable!

Fighting against non-combatants was learned from Sherman and passed on to other yankee commanders. The rest of the war was a tale of one atrocity after another on the yankee side. This was the reason that Lee and others cited for surrendering, the suffering of women and children truly broke the South's will to fight.

If you follow the natural progression of Sherman's policy, it's easy to see how Americans justify women in the military today. He made no distinction between killing male and female, so why shouldn't females be allowed to fight too? If they can die for their country, they can fight for their country. If women can fight and die for their country, they should also be allowed to lead their country.....

So we have a woman running for vice president.

It amazes me that people think of the Union army as heroes! I've noticed (in my limited experience) that many people who praise the North and think of Lincoln as a hero don't know a whole lot about Sherman and the effect he had on the history of our nation.

Isn't that terrible?
Most people don't realize that the policies of total war were advocated by Lincoln, due to politically correct representations of him by the History Channel and other things.

Thanks for the comment!
