First City: Washington, DC
Quantity Issued: 87,741,150
 
William T. Sherman, Ulysses S. Grant, and Philip Sheridan each achieved fame as Union generals during the Civil War. After retiring from the Army, General Grant went on to become the 18th President of the United States.
 
General William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-91)
William T. Sherman served as a Union General during the American Civil War (1861-65). He became known for his 32-day “march to the sea” through Georgia in 1864. During the march, Sherman’s forces moved unopposed through the deep South. He captured and burned Atlanta. Then he headed toward Savannah. Sherman’s army lived off the materials they captured, and destroyed nearly everything in their path – railroads, bridges, and plantations. His army also recruited freed black slaves.
 
Sherman’s campaign destroyed the South’s ability and desire to wage war. In the past, many historians have described Sherman’s campaign as ruthless. However, many modern historians credit him with saving Union and Confederate lives, as well as bringing the war to a swift conclusion. He is considered the architect of modern warfare.
