Union, Mississippi Saved from Sherman's Torch

From the WTOK ABC 11 News "150th Anniversary of Union Being Saved." //// The 150th anniversary of the Meridian Campaign is occurring right now and much of the area in Mississippi was destroyed by Union forces. //// One remainder from those days in Union is Boler's Inn, built in 1864 by Norfleet Staton who came to Mississippi from Union, North Carolina. It still stands and is now a museum. //// Union troops were prepared to burn Union, Mississippi, but General Sherman got it in his head that the name of the town was Union because they supported the Union, and he spared it. //// --Old Secesh
