Tim Sherman's immortal name

None of us early war snobs would ever confuse General Thomas West ("Tim") Sherman (the General Sherman) with a certain politically-connected, unkempt, USV joker named after an Indian chief. Harry Smeltzer blows the whistle on this all-too-common editorial error while reminding us of Sherman's immortal bequest - an eponymous battery.

Further down the post, he traces errors by Hennessy and Bearss.

Excellent use of the medium.
