William Tecumseh Sherman's “March to the Sea” provoked the enmity of generations of white Georgians—a view dramatically bolstered by The Birth of a Nation and Gone with the Wind. This chapter suggests a more complex memory of Sherman among white Georgians, one that juxtaposed a bitter Lost Cause interpretation with a more conciliatory one influenced by the New South mentality and the rise of Jim Crow.

Keywords:   white Georgians, Civil War, Lost Cause, New South mentality, Jim Crow
