In 1864, Union general William Tecumseh 'sherman marched his sixty
thousand troops through Georgia to the sea, and then up into the
Carolinas. The army fought off Confederate forces, demolished cities,
and accumulated a borne-along population of freed blacks and white
refugees until all that remained was the dangerous transient life of
the dispossessed and the triumphant. In E. L.
Doctorow's hands the great march becomes a floating world, a
nomadic consciousness, and an unforgettable reading experience with
awesome relevance to our own times.
