The Shermans had eight children, not all mentioned.
If I ever decide to get around to it, I will post the documented births and marriages which prove that I am a descendent of William Tecumseh Sherman, on my mother's side. We always suspected it, but only proved it about 8 months ago. In case you can't tell, I feel cool to be able to be related to someone with a wikipedia article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:40, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
I believe Sherman's postbellum career needs to be expanded in three areas:
- Sherman's relationship with Ulysses S. Grant and Secretary of War William W. Belknap. This includes the Belknap impeachment trial concerning profiting from the Fort Sill contract. Grant also tempered or over road Sherman's hard line approach to Indians and settling the west.
- Sherman testifying for Orville Babcock in St. Louis concerning the Whiskey Ring. Cmguy777 (talk) 17:34, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
- I agree with you that the portions of the article devoted to Sherman's 14-year service as Commanding General need to be expanded 18:29, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

who the hell is Hirshon???
I googled the damn son of a bitch and found nothing
minor quibble but
"President Benjamin Harrison sent a telegram to General Sherman's family and ordered all national flags to be flown at half mast."
That's "half-staff." A mast is on a ship. "Half-staff" is assumed unless all the flags under order are on ships. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:40, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
