        I was wondered about that, too. I thought maybe it was Gen. Sherman’s way of striking back at the southerners claims that he was a terrorist or arsonist instead of a soldier. But, those probably didn’t start until after the march to the sea, no?

    I suspect by “fairly won” Sherman meant it was won in battle with not inconsequential casualties on both sides. It would not have had to do with the burning of the city, as this did not occur the Union forces were preparing to leave.
