General W. T. Sherman


William Tecumseh Sherman (c. 1820-1891)

“I have again and again been invited to write a history of the war, or to record for publication my personal recollections of it, with large offers of money therefor; all of which I have heretofore declined, because the truth is not always palatable, and should not always be told.”

  • From The Memoirs of General W. T. Sherman (Volume I, Chapter IX) by W. T. Sherman. (Renaissance Classics, 2012).
