This Day in Georgia Civil War History

September 27, 1862

Sherman Still Ruthless in Tennessee

Apparently the citizens of Randolph, TN had not heeded William T. Sherman’s earlier warning (from September 24); on this day he ordered that for every instance of firing onto a Union boat, ten families would be expelled from Memphis. He also began placing Confederate prisoners on boats exposed to potential attack.
