comment General Sherman's March to the Sea
I don't have the background to develop the thesis, but I understand that part of the point of many civil wars (Syria is frequently cited as an example) is to attack civilian populations with the intent of "polarizing" the conflict and shaping the eventual outcome.

comment Why women in medieval India was topless?
I would object to the rephrase as well. There are value judgements embedded that I find diminish both intellectual discourse and historical learning. Might be that not everyone shares my predjudice. I really wish we had a specialist in women's history and gender studies available.
