Union General William Tecumseh Sherman contributed to much of the hardship faced by the Confederacy's civilians: His march through the deep South in 1864 and 1865 spread panic and devastation in the heart of the Confederacy. Confiscating and burning property as they moved, Sherman's soldiers sometimes caused Confederates in places like Charleston, South Carolina to damage property to keep it out of Yankee hands. The children in the Charleston image are African Americans.
