Atlanta Article on War Preparations

The Southern Confederacy of Atlanta printed two items, the first on Southern preparation for war (which was going well), and the second entitled “Old Abe in a Qunadary!” in which a group from the YMCA had met with President Abraham Lincoln to encourage him to recognize the independence of the Southern states in order to avoid war.
