Milledgeville Newspapers Editorials on Conscription

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville printed an editorial on the conscription law; they were willing to support it for the present as a military necessity, but hoped for a “bill of rights” at some later point.

The Southern Federal Union expressed a similar sentiment.
