Newspapers on Arming Civilians for Defense

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville reprinted an editorial from an Augusta newspaper, urging the Confederate government to use weapons captured in battle to arms the citizens at home for use in their defense in case of an invasion.

The Confederate Union of Milledgeville also wrote of Georgians arming themselves for defense.
