The local paper, no doubt scouring Saint Louis Catholic for article ideas and noting the posts about Lincoln and Lee, ran a story yesterday about the 120th anniversary of the funeral of Union General William T. Sherman, the conqueror of Atlanta.

Sherman’s wife was a devout Catholic, and they produced a son who became a Jesuit priest, back when that order was more reliable than at present. General Sherman is buried at Calvary Cemetery.
