The Final Campaign of the Army of Tennessee (Lecture). On March 8, 1865 William T. Sherman crossed into
North Carolina with an army of approximately sixty
thousand men. Opposing Sherman was a small, feeble
force of Confederates under Joseph Johnston. Over the
next two months these two men and their armies would
make North Carolina the scene of chaos and conflict.
Ranger Philip Brown explores the last days of the Army of
Tennessee in North Carolina as the Confederacy collapsed
around and within its ranks.
