About

"East Tennessee is my Horror”, said William T. Sherman, yet he raced to the rescue of the besieged army of Gen. Burnside in November 1863. He praised the quality of the Knoxville defenses of engineer Orlando Poe. The photographs of those fortifications by George Barnard also caught his attention. Recognizing excellence, Sherman handpicked both Poe and Barnard for his ‘March to the Sea.’
