Milledgeville Newspapers Reported on Fort Pulaski
The Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville reported on the fall of Fort Pulaski, although they had few details. They did comment that brick and mortar forts would not be able to stand up to Northern firepower, and that more ironclad ships were needed.
The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville also reported on Fort Pulaski, praised its defenders, and expected an imminent attack on Savannah.
