Bill Arp to Abe Linkhorn

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville published a letter from Georgia’s Bill Arp (real name Charles Henry Smith), addressed to “Mister Abe Linkhorn.”(Abraham Lincoln) While written in humorous language, the letter clearly expressed the still defiant attitude of the South regarding the Civil War.
