Alvin Busic diary entry #4 - Gen. Sherman and his march

Dear diary-
The Union general William Tecumseh Sherman marched from savannah to Atlanta. Once he reached Atlanta, he burned it all. It was not a good day for us rebels. He is just so brutal. It was a great tragedy for the Confederacy considering that Atlanta was our main center of industry and thus held all our factories. It really freaked everyone out, and I feel real bad for all them people in the town when Sherman came through and destroyed it all. All them Northerners foraged around for food after their main attack wiped out one of our key cities, Atlanta. The war is slowly turning in the favor of the Yanks.
