This chapter describes Tecumseh Sherman's character as a writer. It argues that Sherman had few flaws in his writing especially in the inconsistency of his character. Though he showed passiveness and self-control in his writing style, he sometimes changed to being direct and relentless. The chapter also describes Sherman's passion for theater which began in New York in 1836 when he was traveling to begin his study at West Point. His love for theater gave him relief from his eventful and exhausting life. Besides being a soldier and actor, Sherman was also a traveler and a religious practitioner.

Keywords:   Tecumseh Sherman, New York, Sherman's inconsistency, passiveness, self-control, passion for theater
