Don't forget Sheridan and his raping, burning, murdering, starving and pillaging the Shenandoah Vally.

Sherman and Sheridan Blue Scum Bellies bragged for years that most the babies born in the South after the war were probably half Yankee (and not by choice).

My family was ruined by Sherman and like a Jew in old Poland I may be the illegitimate descendant of a rapist Cossack.

You wouldn't happen to have a cite for this, would you? I have read extensively on the Shenendoah Campaign, as well as Sherman's March, and have never read anything that indicated such statements.
