    Sherman's speech

    Causing the death of hundreds of thousands for a hopeless, not to mention repugnant, cause, is the height of idiocy and barbarism.

    Sherman's speech

    ^^ In his statement, Sherman supports the idea that the South must not fight because it doesn't have a chance and that is wrong. If you don't have a chance to win, that doesn't mean you shouldn't fight.
