“Women and children, black and white, were robbed, brutalized, and left homeless in Sherman’s infamous raid through Georgia. Torture and rape were not uncommon. In South Carolina, homes, farms, churches, and whole towns disappeared in flames. Civilians received no mercy at the hands of the Union invaders. Earrings were ripped from bleeding ears, graves were robbed, and towns were pillaged. Wherever Federal troops encountered Southern Blacks, whether free or slave, they were robbed, brutalized, belittled, kidnapped, threatened, tortured, and sometimes raped or killed by their blue-clad “liberators.”

So where are the orders, or do you only have the word of a Lost Causer?

Don’t you know that unless events were acknowledged in official Union Army sources that they didn’t happen?

And if they were admitted to, then they weren’t war crimes; they were simply what the American people living in the South deserved for attempting to leave the loving embrace of their morally superior Northern invaders.
