This Day in Georgia Civil War History

January 17, 1863

Harper’s Weekly Printed Emancipation Proclamation and Cartoon

This week’s edition of Harper’s Weekly printed the text of the Emancipation Proclamation, which mentioned Georgia (and other Confederate states) specifically. They also printed another questionable cartoon - showing racism existed in the North as well.
