The March to the Sea Heritage Trail® (aka Sherman's March) is one of the Georgia Civil War Heritage Trails®. Collectively they are "the official statewide Civil War Historic Driving Trails of Georgia," designated by Georgia's Governor and General Assembly in 2010.

Sherman's army, split into left and right wings, made "Georgia howl" along two 300-mile driving routes from Atlanta to Savannah. This trail features historic homes, churches, depots, battlefields, forts, museums and more.

The "Left Wing" route travels from Stone Mountain through Conyers, Covington, Social Circle, Madison, Eatonton, Milledgeville, Sandersville, Louisville, Waynesboro, Sylvania, Ebenezer Creek and Port Wentworth to Savannah. The "Right Wing" route travels from McDonough, Jackson, Hillsboro, Clinton, Griswoldville, Gordon, Irwinton, Bartow, Millen, Oliver, Guyton, Pooler and Richmond Hill to Fort McAllister.

Follow their foot-steps from Atlanta to the sea where Civil War history was made.
