The world knows the name of William Tecumseh Sherman but few Americans remember his brother John. Both men were powerful players in American history from the mid to late 19th century. Both were supported and protected by their relationship with General Sherman's foster father, Thomas Ewing.
As a United States Senator, John Sherman was also in a position to advise and protect his not-infrequently controversial brother. In turn, William exchanged his uncensored opinions on a wide range of public and private issues. For over fifty years, they carried on a fascinating and affectionate correspondence during some of the most turbulent and important years in America.
From Cadet Sherman's days at West Point, through failed business ventures, to astonishing success in the American Civil War, and later during the Indian Wars, you'll read both brothers' views on many issues of the day.
General Sherman's daughter found these letters after his death and edited them for publication. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
