Newspaper Letter Strongly Supported Secession
The Daily Federal Union of Milledgeville reported on meetings in both north Georgia (Calhoun) and south Georgia (Mitchell County) in which the citizens of both locales strongly supported secession. Echoing that sentiment was a letter published on the same page, giving an impassioned argument for secession, and promising to say when it should be done in a future letter.
