Editorial Argued Much Work Required to Achieve Independence
The Milledgeville Southern Federal Union published Georgia’s causes of secession, which had been approved by the secession convention on January 29.
The Southern Federal Union also printed an editorial saying that while paper resolutions and ordinances were fine, much work also had to be done to achieve independence, and hoping the people of Georgia were up to it.
