This Day in Georgia Civil War History
February 28, 1865
Milledgeville Newspapers Printed Differing Editorials on Brown/Davis Conflict
The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville printed an editorial critical of Georgia Governor Joseph E. Brown’s recent message to the Georgia General Assembly. Brown, as he had been in the past, was critical himself of the Confederate government, particularly President Jefferson Davis.
The Confederate Union of Milledgeville printed an editorial which indicated they seemed to agree with Governor Brown’s assessment of President Davis.
