Stereograph of General William T. Sherman

Description
Some stereoviews, like this one of General William Tecumseh Sherman on his steed, made the conflict seem heroic instead of portraying the destruction and chaos of war. This photograph was taken by George Barnard for his Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign series.
