A Sherman Biography

May 2024
1min read

Your article on General Sherman in the July/August 1987 issue was fascinating. I am General Sherman’s great-great-grandson and have been studying his life for several years. I have collected dozens of books, articles, and other memorabilia on him and his impact on this country.

At the end of your article, you mentioned that the last major biography of Sherman was by Lloyd Lewis in 1932. Actually, a first-rate biography, William Tecumseh Sherman , by James M. Merrill, was published in 1971 by Rand McNally.
