Gee, I just can't believe he didn't do any research. There is so much detail. Doctorow would have had to have a heck of an imagination in order to be able to write that book and not have done any study of Sherman's march and the culture of the times.

Maybe he said he didn't do research just to appear cool and not scare readers away who might think the novel was too much like a history book or an exhaustive examination of Sherman's campaign through Georgia and the Carolinas.
