Macon Newspaper on Emancipation Proclamation and Robert Toombs

Two items of interest from the Georgia Weekly Telegraph of Macon, first was another commentary on the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, arguing that it was a political ploy to help the Republicans in the upcoming elections. Second was a recounting of the “desperate gallantry” of Robert Toombs at Sharpsburg.
