Through the Heart of Dixie: Sherman's March and American Memory
by Anne Sarah Rubin

"A valuable exploration of the myriad ways Americans--from Union soldiers to freepeople to white southern women--have struggled to interpret Sherman's March through Georgia and the Carolinas, serving up a provocative assessment of its cultural legacy to the present time."
--Joan Waugh, author of U. S. Grant, American Hero, American Myth
