Attempting a quick, decisive victory in the 1864 struggle for Atlanta, William Tecumseh Sherman’s cavalry wreaked havoc in the countryside around the city. This book, based largely upon previously unpublished materials, tells the story of Sherman’s raids. Through exhaustive research, David Evans has been able to recreate a vivid, captivating, and meticulously detailed image of the day-by-day life of the Yankee horse soldier.
