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
