William T. Sherman
“So we sang the chorus from Atlanta to the Sea…” An absolutely enormous signed photograph of General William T. Sherman, inscribed to his Chief of Staff on the March to the Sea, Col. Joseph Audenried
1802. 18/02/1874. William T. Sherman was the most creative and intuitively brilliant of all the high-ranking Union generals of the Civil War.

Sherman’s employment of this technique brought a resounding victory for the Union and exposed the weakness of the South, though earning him the lasting enmity of Southerners. Nevertheless, he epitomized the characteristics of a brilliant tactician, and because of his warfare tactics, the Civil War ended much sooner than it would otherwise have.Joseph Audenried had the distinction of serving under the two most illustrious generals in the Union army, and was recognized three times for gallant and meritorious service with brevet promotions to captain, major (Atlanta campaign) and lieutenant colonel (war). In 1863 he served in the western theater under Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, and took part in the fall of Vicksburg and pursuit through Tennessee. In October 1863, Audenried was transferred to Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman’s staff, rising to Chief of Staff, and never again leaving his staff for the remainder of the war. With Sherman, Audenried took part in the Chattanooga and Knoxville Campaigns, the Atlanta Campaign, and the famous March to the Sea and March through the Carolinas.This is a photograph of General W.T. Sherman, enhanced slightly with watercolors, the image 16.25 by 21.25 inches, matted and framed to an overall presentation of 22.5 x 27.5 inches, inscribe … [Click Below for Full Description]
