The Southern Confederacy of Atlanta printed a letter from a soldier serving in the Georgia coastal defenses; it told of Northern armaments being delivered in preparation for an attack on Fort Pulaski (which would occur in April), and his opinion that all of the citizens of Savannah were not trustworthy.
