I have always wondered why Sherman felt it was necessary to destroy Atlanta. My parents have a 1960s Encylopedia Britannica which claims it was done to sway public opinion and assure Lincoln of reelection. (I don't have the book handy to cite the exact reference.) Anyway, here's the letter he sent to the Mayor of Atlanta right before he burned the city: HEADQUARTERS MILITARY DIVISION OF THE MISSISSIPPI, IN THE FIELD, ATLANTA, GEORGIA September 12, 1864 JAMES M....

I think that the people of the south have to realize this, and stop trying to whitewash it over. This is an interesting assertion.

I did take her to the symphony and she seemed to like it. It's weird; it really does feel like a "My Fair Lady" type of thing sometimes. Have you seen the Glenn Gould DVD "Hereafter"?
