** ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 2011 AND THEREAFTER ** FILE - In this 1864 photo made available by the Library of Congress, Gen. William T. Sherman's Union troops use a lever especially designed by his engineers to tear apart train rails as they march through Georgia during the American Civil War. The rails were half the weight of modern-day rails and were pried up easily. To make Confederate pursuit impossible, they were destroyed beyond repair using a technique called 'Sherman's neck ties.' A large shell hole is in the building at left. (AP Photo/Library of Congress)
