Sherman Learned Armistice Terms Rejected

Union General William T. Sherman learned that President Andrew Johnson had rejected the armistice terms he had signed with Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston on April 18. Furthermore, Sherman was ordered to move his army against the remaining Confederates within forty-eight hours. Sherman was furious at the order, but prepared to obey it.
