Sherman Letter to Grant

From Savannah, General William T. Sherman wrote a letter to Ulysses Grant indicating his plan to send the 17th Corps to Port Royal. He also included a copy of his plans for invading South Carolina – providing he could be supplied with grain and other stores. According to those plans, Gen. Foster and his troops would be left behind to continue the occupation of Savannah.
