The Memoirs of General William T. Sherman is a book by the Civil war general, first published in two volumes in 1875. The book covers Sherman's early life, his military training at West Point, his service in the Mexican-American War, and his experiences as a Union general during the Civil War. He provides vivid descriptions of some of the most significant battles of the Civil War, including the capture of Atlanta and the famous March to the Sea, during which he led his troops on a devastating march through Georgia, destroying everything in their path. The book also provides insights into Sherman's personality and his relationships with other prominent figures of his time, including President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant. In addition, Sherman discusses his post-war career, including his service as the commanding general of the United States Army and his involvement in the Indian Wars in the western United States. President Ulysses S. Grant had been told that the book treated him unfairly, but after reading it, he remarked that '...it was a true book, an honorable book, creditable to Sherman, just to his companions — to myself particularly so — just such a book as I expected Sherman would write.'
