Today is the 156th Anniversary of Sherman's March to the Sea

While the Biden/Harris administration builds back better, they and the 117th Congress would do well to hold Grant's spirit of dismantling. There can neither be coexisting "parallel" Republican strongholds nearby, nor hat in hand Republicans given positions of power.
Forgiveness is for God.
Forgetting is never.

More monuments for Sherman and Grant, I say. To remind the losers why they still keep losing.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherman's_March_to_the_Sea

William T. Sherman and the Union Army's commander, Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, believed that the Civil War would come to an end only if the Confederacy's strategic capacity for warfare was decisively broken.

The march was made easier by able assistants such as Orlando Metcalfe Poe, chief of the bridge building and demolition team. Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman selected Poe as his chief engineer in 1864. Poe oversaw the burning of Atlanta, for which action he was honored by Sherman. Poe directly supervised the dismantling of all buildings and structures in Atlanta that could have provided any military value to the Confederates

3. Agree, BUT. That action, good for then, should not be a model for us in the 21st Century.
