From the TALK series, The Civil War. Discussion Leader: Thomas Prasch.
General William Tecumseh Sherman's famous March, the rapacious scorched-earth tromping of Union forces across Georgia and the Carolinas, seemed designed to prove his slogan that "war is hell." Doctorow in this novel brings to bear a perspective that blends panoramic overview with local experience, freely mixing fictional creations with historical figures.
