    No, no one is bombing the crap out of anyone. There is no true air campaign.

    Grant and Sherman were super tight. I'm not going to say it didn't have any effect on the war but the path for the South's loss was laid out long before the Georgia campaign. The north's factories were starting to churn out repeater rifles vs the south's weaponry which was mostly hunting weapons aka... short ranged shotguns and muzzle loaders. Not to mention that the South had thrown in their whole lot in the war with regards to men and the North still had people not involved and still had colleges with a rather full attendance.

    Sherman would've done better having after Atlanta, turned North and closed in on any attempts of a Lee retreat Southward rather than terrorizing and looting civilian domain.

    Obama lost the peace, Kobie. He has blood on his hands.
    Okay man. Your steadfast denial is duly noted. I should start calling you Baghdad Bob from now on.

    Your ignorance of our Civil War is striking. Sherman's objective after Savannah was destruction in South Carolina and North Carolina as he marched north to link up with Grant and trap Lee.

    What does congress... the people in charge of going to war have to say? You know, that part of government that the Republicans own? Other than it's Obama's fault of course.

    We shall see, although the half-hearted effort thus far provides little for anyone to rally around.

    I guess you didn't read what I said after having quoted it. No surprise from you there. I said AFTER Atlanta then heading North. The time from Atlanta to Savannah was pointless. Soo.... perhaps you should read someone's post before quoting and responding to it.

    The March from Atlanta to Savannah was strategically critical. Aside from crushing Confederate morale and destroying the Georgia economy, possession of Savannah created a new logistics base (access to northern shipping) for the drive north.
