Macon Newspaper Printed Article on Movement of Union Army

The Macon Tri-Weekly Telegraph printed a report from the site of the last big battle in Virginia, indicating that the Northern army , although slowed by rain and muddy roads, seemed to be preparing for another movement against the Confederates. They were in fact doing so; this attempt at invading the South would culminate in early May at Chancellorsville.
