General William T. Sherman


General William T. Sherman (c. 1820-1891)

“I have never been a politician, and therefore undervalue the excited feelings and opinions of present rulers, but I do not think, if this people cannot execute a form of government like the present, that a worse one will result.”

  • From a letter by Sherman to Governor Moore (January 18, 1861) included in The Memoirs of General W. T. Sherman (Volume 1, chapter 7) by W. T. Sherman. (Renaissance Classics, 2012).
