Soldiers Condemned “Croakers;” Asked for More Volunteers

The Confederate Union of Milledgeville printed a letter from a group of Georgia soldiers in Virginia, insisting the army was still confident, and asking for more volunteers to join them. They also condemned the “croakers” - the term commonly used for those wanting to submit or ask for peace.
