Week 188

(Oct. 30th - Nov 5th, 1864)

Saturday - Nov. 5, 1864

  • The Burning of Cassville
  • First Hand Account."Sherman's motives seemed to be the pleasure he derived from torturing women and children. There could be no other motive, for the town was two miles from the railroad and contained no buildings of importance, and he well knew every circumstance connected with that little town. How he must have rejoiced that dismal, sleety November night, when he thought of the helpless women and children who were spending it under a sky as pitiless as himself!"
