“22nd of February” Editorial

The Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville, published an editorial on the significance of the date February 22 - George Washington’s birthday and the date on which the Confederate Government was scheduled to convene in Richmond, VA. Not noted in this editorial, but just as significant - this also the day President Abraham Lincoln had ordered Union troops to begin moving against the South.
