One hundred and fifty years ago, Gen. Sherman's troops burned their way across Georgia and South Carolina waging total war against the unarmed citizens of the state.

Over the coming weeks we will document the horrors the citizens - my family - suffered at the hands of our government. The daily pictures of horror we now see in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iran happened HERE.

Sherman's March to the Sea

Lest we forget. “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. - George Santayana

"Our sufferings were as nothing when compared to those inflicted upon the women of Virginia, East Tennessee Columbia and New Orleans. Inflicted, not as citizens, but especially designed for them as women.

It was impressed upon us that our devotion to our cause was a crime for which we were to be punished to the utmost limits of our enemies' power. Is this to be forgotten? Is it natural or even possible?

There will not be another war in our day, at least, and remembering the disastrous termination of our late efforts, I cannot wish that the struggle should ever be renewed. Do not think I wish to rake up old wrongs, and stir up old strifes. Far from it. 'The past is with the eternal past,' and I would that it, with all its miseries and unavenged cruelties, were swept into oblivion.

But for the Southern woman there flows no such beneficent stream. The hearts that were wrung with anguish, yet beat; the eyes that wept themselves into blindness, yet ache for the sight of the loved and lost."
