As part of his campaign through Georgia and the Carolinas, Gen. William T. Sherman created a psychological war on civilians that is the focus of a presentation at 6:30 p.m. at the Kershaw County Library, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 10 at the Kershaw County Library, 1304 Broad St., Camden. "In addition to physical and economic assaults, Sherman designed a massive psychological strategy of disinformation and deception designed to cripple the Confederacy, to destroy the faith of civilians in their leaders and their government, and to kill the will of the people to fight," said USC Professor Emerita Pat Gantt McNeely. Sherman’s strategy was simple, she said.
