Upon the death of General Sherman, the Union veterans of the Army of Tennessee published a booklet about General Sherman's career to raise money for a memorial. His memorial is the largest Civil War related monument in Washington, D.C. It is located in the park just East of the South Lawn of the White House.
The Memorial is topped by an acquestrian statue of General Sherman. Bias reliefs on the side depict his corps commanders. On one side is a list of all of Sherman's ranks he attained during his career and the other side is a list of all of his commands. Four military figures stand watch around the base of the memorial. All of his battles are set in stone around the base.
