Foraging off the countryside, they destroyed mills and cotton gins, confiscated livestock, looted homes and tore up more than 200 miles of rail lines, as shown here. Sherman's tactics worked: Southerners were forced to realize their cause was lost. But the enmity engendered by such harsh action lingered after the war.
