Editorials Called on Men to Defend Savannah
The Confederate Union of Milledgeville published two editorials, both calling on men to defend Savannah - as General P.G.T. Beauregard had indicated the previous week, there was fear of an imminent invasion there. In reality, the invasion of Georgia would come later in the year, from the opposite end of the state, only to end with the fall of Savannah.
