“Traitors” to Not Grow Food

Continuing its crusade to encourage the growth of grain instead of cotton, the Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville referred to any planters who did not do so as “traitors.”

An item in The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville indicated that the planters of Putnam County were heeding the call to grow grain and corn.
