As a follow up to Monday's post of the Secessionist Gala Ball in Charleston here is something for the other side.
On this date 1864 Union Major General William T. Sherman sent the following telegram to President Abraham Lincoln.
"I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the city of Savannah with 150 heavy guns, plenty of ammunition and also about 25,000 bales of cotton"
I doubt the Sons of the Union Army Veterans have an annual sit down commemorating this in Savannah.
