Harper’s Weekly Update on Confederate Army in Georgia

This week’s edition of Harper’s Weekly carried a brief item on the condition and movements of the Confederate army in Georgia; while some of Longstreet’s cavalry may have been in Georgia, the bulk of his army was returning to Virginia.

Harper’s Weekly also printed an image of slaves escaping to freedom on a boat by moonlight.
