      There were lots of Shermans back then. William T. Sherman had a
      brother who was a presidential nominee wannabe but never was as
      popular as his brother.

      Then there was Senator John Sherman, who was famous for tagging his
      name on important legislations. (Who doesn't remember the Sherman
      Anti-trust Act!)

      This Sherman that we are talking about is James Schoolcraft Sherman,
      a House member from New York. Whether he had anything to do with the
      other guys... Greg, I have no clue.
