Confederate Breakdown

By Michael
Civil War Reporter


Nothing but destruction
The March to the Sea was a horrible tragedy for the confederates. March to the Sea was a march of destruction led by union General Sherman. He and his army destroyed homes and stores; they destroyed plant crops, terminated bridges, and sliced up railroad tracks. That was the most destruction ever done on states.
It affected the confederacy so horrid because all of their supplies, roadways, and their supports had been neutralized. And because of that General Sherman took control over Savannah. I think that was tremendous for the union to get Savannah. The union soldiers were just one more victory away from winning the bloody civil war.
