Sherman is Dead.

General William Tecumseh Sherman died on Saturday afternoon from the effects of a cold contracted about ten days previous….Under no circumstances can a true southerner ever think kindly of Sherman. Here he will ever be regarded as the Attila of the 19th century….

Capt. Dick Hargis has been on a visit home for the past two weeks. The captain said when he read the news of Gen. Sherman’s death, that he was always a strong believer in the final retribution of evil doers, and though Sherman was “Marching through Georgia” twenty seven years ago, destroying everything in his path, he was now “marching through” a warmer clime than Georgia; and somebody else was applying the torch this time.
