Pat Buchanan Doesn't Like Sherman

"The great terrorist in that war was William Tecumseh Sherman, who violated all the known rules of war by looting, burning and pillaging on his infamous March to the Sea from Atlanta to Savannah. Sherman would later be given command of the war against the Plains Indians and advocate extermination of the Sioux. 

"'The only good Indian is a dead Indian' is attributed both to Sherman and Gen. Phil Sheridan, who burned the Shenandoah and carried out Sherman's ruthless policy against the Indians. Both have statues and circles named for them in Washington, D.C."

But he does support Confederate History Month. You can read the rest of his commentary here.

If we had won, it would have been Sherman, not Wirz, on the gallows.
