"Eric Burke, in his fascinating study, Soldiers from Experience: The Forging of Sherman’s Fifteenth Army Corps 1862 – 1863, examines the development of the Federal XV Corps, from its origins under General William T. Sherman in 1862 through the end of 1863, by which time, Burke argues, the Corps had forged a very particular 'tactical culture' that distinguished it from other units, not only in the Western Theater of operations, but throughout the entire Federal Army."
