Brief Item on Action in Georgia
The Richmond Times Dispatch printed the following brief report on action in Georgia - not much of it as Sherman prepared for the next step in his campaign against Georgia.
From Georgia. The best news that we have from Georgia is, that our troops have commenced active operations against the foraging parties which the Yankees, in Atlanta, are sending out. Last week, our cavalry captured a forage train in the vicinity of the city, and brought off three hundred and fifty mules. The wagons were not brought off. There was a cavalry attack by Kilpatrick on Wheeler, last week, which was repulsed.
