Week 37 (December 29th - January 4th)
As Sherman’s war in Georgia concludes, the Confederate cause is defeated. Sherman has destroyed property, left thousands destitute, and is the most despised man in the South. But his methods prove true: he has crippled the Confederacy and shortened the war. Lincoln’s reelection and emancipation are won in tandem. The promise of freedom does not guarantee social justice. But there is hope in 1865.
