Sherman's March to the Sea is the commonly given name for the Savanna Campaign, conducted by Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. The march took place from November 15 to December 21, 1864. Sherman's March to the Sea began with Sherman's forces departing from the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia and ended with the port of Savanna falling into Union hands. Along the road to Savanna, Sherman's forces destroyed Confederate military positions, as well as industrial facilities, Southern infrastructure, civilian property, and they also disrupted communication and transportation. All of this deeply hurt the South's economy. General Sherman's march so deep into enemy lines without a supply line is considered revolutionary in the annals of warfare.
