This Day in Georgia Civil War History

June 16, 1863

Newspapers Blasted Yankee Raiding

The Confederate Union of Milledgeville printed an editorial condemning the Yankees for taking to raiding when they could not win on the battlefields of Virginia, then moves on the dire situation at Vicksburg, with the vain hope that Confederate commanders had some secret plan to relieve the siege there.

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville also blasted the seemingly new Union tactic of raiding.
