This Day in Georgia Civil War History

Soldier Left Home after Brief Furlough
Julia Johnson Fisher - who was staying in Camden County during the war - made a brief entry in her diary about a relative leaving home after a quick furlough, and the weather improving.
Fred left today. Last evening we had a letter from Julia and $80.00 for me–$35.00 of which I lent Fred and $10 to Gussie. Mr. Fisher is very impatient for his passport. The weather is now becoming Summer like, berries are ripening and the forest is looking fresh and beautiful. Source: Julia Johnson Fisher, 1814-1885 Diary, 1864
