May 4, 1865: Sherman still pissed

William Tecumseh Sherman

Sherman is really still steamed about the whole Johnston surrender thing. In any case, he’s coming north and will talk to Grant about it.


MOREHEAD CITY, N. C., May 4, 1865-9 p. m.

(Received 10. 30 a. m. 5th.)

Lieutenant General U. S. GRANT,

Washington:

Just arrived from Savannah. All well in that quarter. Sent two boats with stores for Wilson up to Augusta. Gillmore will occupy Augusta and Orangeburg. The two brigades from here have sailed for Savannah. Have you any reason why I should longer submit to the insult contained in Halleck’s dispatch in the New York papers of the 28th? I will go to City Point in a few days. Answer me there.

W. T. SHERMAN,

Major-General.
