The "March to the Sea" occured in november-december 1864, following the "Atlanta campaign" (may-september 1864) also led by Sherman.
In the episode, they said :
- "Have you seen this photograph before?"
- "Sure l have. That is Colonel Thaddeus Riker after he was wounded at Pine Mountain. They used to call him Old lron Boots. He was in command of the 102nd New York during General Sherman's march on Atlanta. This picture was taken in 1864, just after they let him out of the army hospital."

In the episode, Q just talks about "Sherman's march on Atlanta". I'm not an American civil war buff, but google seems to suggest that that's a perfectly common and acceptable name for the campaign, even if "Sherman's March to the Sea" is more common. -- Capricorn (talk) 20:26, May 14, 2016 (UTC)
