Richmond Newspaper Printed Item on War Tax Collection in Georgia
The Richmond Times Dispatch printed an item on the expected war tax collection in Georgia.
War tax in Georgia. –Hon. E. G. Cabiness, collector for Georgia, has furnished the Macon Telegraph, with a report of his progress in collecting the Confederate war tax. He anticipates an annual revenue of twenty millions from Georgia, and taking this estimate as a basis the war tax will aggregate a hundred millions in the State–perhaps a hundred and ten.
