the War for the morally right side, the Union.
If William Sherman would have never lived, there is no telling what could have happened. Possibly, a Confederate victory could have occurred and perhaps even slavery could still be around today. It is hard to imagine what might have happened in The Civil War if it wasn't for the actions of Sherman. Everyone (including most southerners) should be thankful for William Sherman doing what he did.
