William T. Sherman
Major General William Tecumseh Sherman of the Union Army in May 1865. The black ribbon around his left arm is a sign of mourning over Abraham Lincoln's death. During the American Civil War, Sherman received recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy and criticism for the harshness of the " scorched earth" policies that he implemented in conducting total war against the Confederate States.Photo credit: Mathew Brady
