General William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891).

Sherman is best known as a Union general during the American Civil War. His major claim to fame was making good on his statement to "make Georgia howl" by marching from Atlanta to Savannah, living off the land and generally leaving the inhabitants of that part of the south an estimated $100 million in property destruction.

Sherman also visited Prescott in 1878.
