Deutsch: William Tecumseh Sherman (* 8. Februar 1820 in Lancaster, Ohio; † 14. Februar 1891 in New York, N.Y.) war Soldat, Bankier, Rechtsanwalt, Schriftsteller und einer der bekanntesten Generale des amerikanischen Bürgerkrieges.

English: William Tecumseh Sherman ( February 8, 1820February 14 1891) was an American soldier, businessman, educator, and author. He served as a general in the United States Army during the American Civil War (1861–65), receiving both recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy, and criticism for the harshness of the "scorched earth" policies he implemented in conducting total war against the enemy. Military historian Basil Liddell Hart famously declared that Sherman was "the first modern general."[1]
Español: Sherman sirvió bajo las órdenes del general Ulysses S. Grant en 1862 y 1863 durante las campañas que condujeron a la caída de la fortaleza confederada de Vicksburg en las cercanías del río Mississippi y que culminaron con la expulsión de las tropas confederadas del estado de Tennessee. En 1864, Sherman sucedió a Grant como comandante de las fuerzas de la Unión en el teatro occidental de operaciones. Allí lideró a sus tropas en la captura de la ciudad de Atlanta, un éxito militar que contribuyó decisivamente para la reelección del presidente
