Diary Entry on Hiding Livestock from Yankees

A Georgia man wrote in his journal of hiding livestock from the approaching Yankees.

“Yankees at Lithonia and may be here today or tomorrow. Are getting things put away from them… . With sheep and cattle being out of the way, we are now ready to stand a trial with the Yankees.” Source: Franklin M. Garrett, Atlanta and Its Environs: A Chronicle of Its People and Events (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1969 reprint of original 1954 volume), p. 648.
