“The March” by E. L. Doctorow

December 15, 2014

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.

Funded project of the Kansas Humanities Council.  KHC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by a Board of Directors. Individual and corporate contributions, funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and funding from the State of Kansas supports our work.
