William Sherman's major contribution to the war was that he was a Union general and he won many battles. His job never changed during the war except him being promoted and demoted. He made a 60 mile long path of destruction through the south and destroyed lots of transpiration and made the south have lots of problems because they had no way to transport thingsHis life changed during the war because he lost the battle of bull run in the beginning of the war and was demoted and started to question his judgment but he got his act together and was promoted to the second general in command.His view never changed on slavery he thought it is a repugnant this that is cruel and never ever should be legal.

Facts about him

William T. Sherman

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.”—William Tecumseh Sherman
