This Day in Georgia Civil War History

April 18, 1865

Newspapers Held Out Faint Hope

The Confederate Union of Milledgeville admitted they had no news on the whereabouts of Lee’s army in Virginia, but did indicate a Union force was headed for Columbus. They hoped to have good news to report on those fronts soon; they would of course be disappointed.

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville was remaining defiant and hopeful to the last - not yet knowing of the latest military reverses.
