This Day in Georgia Civil War History

February 21, 1865

Editorial Praised Southern Soldiers, Questioned Some Leadership

The Confederate Union of Milledgeville printed an editorial praising the soldiers of the Confederate army then trying to oppose Sherman, but admitted its leadership had left much to be desired. They hoped restoring General Joseph E. Johnston to his command would inspire the army to regain its confidence, but of course the end of the war was now quickly approaching and there was little what remained of the army could do.
