This Day in Georgia Civil War History

February 22, 1865

Report on Confederate Soldiers Raiding Store

The Southern Banner of Athens printed a report on a mob of soldiers raiding a store in Hartwell, Georgia; sadly these were Confederate soldiers.

Mob in Hart County. We understand that some soldiers belonging to Hood’s army, at home on furlough, made a “raid” on the Commissary store in Hartwell last Thursday, and helped themselves to what they wanted. They afterwards went to McMullen’s mill, where the Government grain was ground, and distributed to about fifty females a sack of flour each.

Unfortunately, such scenes would grow more frequent as the end of the war approached.
