Yes, the man behind the “Sherman Anti-Trust Act” was related to the man behind “Sherman’s March to the Sea”.

The Sherman Anti-Trust Act, passed in 1890, was sponsored by John Sherman, the younger brother of William Tecumseh Sherman.

It was the latter Sherman who, as a Union general, led the destructive march across Georgia in 1864, ravaging the countryside from Atlanta to Savannah.
