Worthy Opponents: William T. Sherman and Joseph E. Johnston: Antagonists in War -- Friends in Peace
Edward G. Longacre (au)
When the Civil War broke out in 1861, William Tecumseh Sherman and Joseph E. Johnston were hardly aware of each other. They had grown up on opposite sides of the Mason-Dixon Line with separate passions, convictions, and goals in life. In April 1861, Johnston and Sherman began to wage war against each otherís nations. Johnston, Sherman believed, was the shrewdest, cleverest opponent he had ever faced. At the end of the war, these two generals tried to negotiate a just and lenient peace, which, if not for the interference of the Fed. Govít., might have changed the face of Reconstruction in the South. After the war, Johnston and Sherman became friends. Here is a vivid picture of these two rivals, antagonists, and eventual friends.
