I admire General Sherman, but I will have to wait until I have a free hour.

Thanks. Will definitely watch this one. There's also on YouTube a doco done by the conquerors series which was hosted dale dye. It was called March to the sea. That's also worth watching

Is it good? Tough subject to handle if a documentary's production team wishes to find an audience, you know? He's still a swear word 150 years later in some places, pretty controversial figure.

This has been on TV many times,mainly when Georgia public broadcasting put on a weekly series that ran for 37 weeks called "37 weeks of Sherman in Georgia.they did this with the Atlanta History Center and it was a week by week chronicle of the Atlanta Campaign and the March to the Sea.it was really quite good and really well done.IIRC I believe I posted about this back in 2014.

Thanks, kepi. First time ever I've watched an hour of a presentation. It was worth it.

Very true!
I’m fascinated about how Sherman’s reputation/image changed after the war. To this day, you won’t find many people who know Johnston and Hood befriended Sherman.
I may have to dig deeper into this.

I know this OP is a couple of years old, but I just had a chance to view the documentary on TV yesterday.

I thought it was really, really good!

Any criticisms out there that I should be aware of? Sherman is depicted as sort of racist prick, which surprised me.

Yes, I thought it was quite good.

I'd be interested in the opinions of folks here at CWT who are expert on the Atlanta campaign, or on Sherman's career.
