Sherman's march through South Carolinahelped bring the Civil War to an end. Formany Union soldiers, the march was anopportunity to punish South Carolina,widely viewed as the state that started the war.

For many white Carolinians, it left burnedhouses and farms and bred lingering bitterness. For the thousands of blackslaves who followed Sherman's army, the march brought freedom an an uncertainfuture.
