William Tecumseh Sherman fought a war of destruction in Georgia, aimed at destroying the South's will and ability to fight. General Sherman took the battle to the heart of the Confederacy when he marched his army through Georgia to the sea, inflicting the maximum destruction on the land as he passed through. Georgia was the southernmost and last of the original thirteen colonies on the Atlantic seaboard. The survey line between Maryland and Pennsylvania, the work of two surveyors Mason and Dixon between 1763 and 1767, has come to represent the divide between the free North and the slaveholding South.
