This Day in Georgia Civil War History

June 18, 1861

“Calm Before the Storm” Editorial

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville commented on the “calm before the storm” phase the war was in, correctly predicting that the war would be devastating, but incorrectly predicting the outcome. On the same page was reported the events of a national day of fasting and prayer, calling on divine guidance for the impending struggle.
