comment General Sherman's March to the Sea
I took out the phrase "justified from a military perspective," thereby limiting the question to what historians think about the campaign. That question is answerable.

comment Which country ruled Flanders in the 16th century?
@PieterGeerkens: Only the seven NORTHERN provinces (modern Netherlands) adopted the Union of Utrecht, and a later declaration of independence.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlands. The differences between north and south is like the difference between the U.S. and Canada in 1776. Spain eventually recognized the independence of the northern provinces, but the Hapsburgs later got back the southern part (modern Belgium) which did spend time in "indentured servitude" to the north. I added a note to this effect to clarify.
