Died: Feb. 14, 1891 - New York City, New York, USA
Sherman attended West Point and spent some service time in Florida and California, but resigned his commission in 1853. Jobs in banking and law were unsuccessful and at the outset of the Civil War, he was appointed colonel in the Army. Promoted to general after the first Battle of Bull Run, Sherman, together with Grant's armies, won a brilliant victory at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Probably best remembered, and hated, for his destruction through Georgia in 1864. After the war, Sherman was named commanding general of the army by President Grant in 1869. His Memoirs were published in 1875.
