Destroy the farms, kill the livestock, burn any crops the army can't eat, and wreck the railroads. Violence against civilians was strictly forbidden.

What are the General Orders of the Army?
There are three General Orders: 1st General Order "I will guard everything within the limits of my post and quit my post only when properly relieved." 2nd General Order "I will obey my special orders and perform all of my duties in a military manner." 3rd General Order "I will report violations of my special orders, emergencies, and anything not covered in my instructions, to the commander of the relief." The Navy/Marines, and Coast Guard have a list of General Orders that represent essentially what the Army's three General Orders do.
What was the rational given by General William T Sherman for the failure to entrench US Grant's forces at Shiloh?
General William T. Sherman headed the 5th Division of the Army of the Tennessee at the Battle of Shiloh. US Grant and his forces embarked from Union transport ships and landed at Pittsburg Landing on April 3, 1862. Most historians have written that Grant did not expect to encounter any enemy troops so there was no rush to dig entrenchments. Although this was not proper procedure, there would have been no issue concerning this accept for the unknown presence of Confederate troops which would engage Grant in battle on April 6, 1862. General Sherman, however, writes that entrenchment orders were not given because Grant did not want these fresh troops to be concerned about an immediate battle. He said the troops would be intimidated. This seems to be out of character for both generals.
How did general Sherman change the tactics of the war?
When Grant was promoted General-in-Chief in March 1864, he ordered Sherman to destroy the Army of Tennessee. When that army retreated into Atlanta, Sherman decided to capture the city, as a morale-booster for Lincoln's re-election campaign. But the enemy managed to escape. After a brief attempt at pursuit, Sherman figured out that the Confederate cause would be damaged more effectively by punitive raids on the Georgia farmland. This March to the Sea, with minimal combat or losses, did indeed shorten the war by months. It ran counter to Grant's orders, of course, but fortunately Sherman carried high credibility with Grant, who did eventually endorse the plan.

Was Sherman's March to the Sea a battle or not?
Union General William Tecmseh Sherman's so called "March to the Sea" was a series of battles in which at least to key missions were completed. Technically speaking, the March began at Atlanta and ended in Savannah. 1. To begin at Atlanta, Sherman had to battle Confederate General Hood. At Hood's retreat, Sherman lay Atlanta to siege and captured a major railway hub and made the city his headquarters for about 2 months. He left the city "destroyed"; 2. Sherman encountered resistance on his march to capture the seaport of Savannah. He continued his scorched earth policies ( as Lincoln & Grants orders ). So, without any doubt, Sherman's march to the sea entailed multiple battles.

Who ordered Sherman to capture Atlanta?
Nobody. When Grant became General-in-Chief, he told his Generals that he wasn't interested in occupying territory, only in destroying Confederate armies. His orders to Sherman were to destroy the Army of Tennessee, wherever he found it. Sherman had not managed to do this, partly because he was handicapped by his long and vulnerable supply-line. Meanwhile, Lincoln was facing a General Election on unfavourable terms, with no recent battlefield victories, but casualties mounting every day. Capturing Atlanta would at least sound like big news and restore Northern morale.

What caused Union General William S Rosencrans to delay his advance on Confederate General Bragg in Tennessee?
Union General William S. Rosencrans was a conservative general. He had delayed orders from Washington DC to advance on the Southern army led by General Braxton Bragg. Part of the delay was due to the fact that his supply line, the Louisville and Nashville railway was constantly under assault by Confederate guerrilla raids. These raids, and others similar to it were an important part of the US Civil War.
