Idealized Contrast Between Southern and Northern Soldiers

The Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville reprinted an item from a Virginia newspaper - a glowing, somewhat idealized, tribute to the lowest of the military ranks in the Confederate army.

While one newspaper was praising Southern soldiers, The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville published an item showing the supposed vulgarity of their Northern counterparts.
