This Day in Georgia Civil War History

July 04, 1862

Cities Conquered, but No Submission

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Southern Confederacy of Atlanta or this day was what was NOT mentioned - no word at all on it being independence day, albeit for a “foreign, ” enemy nation. They did reprint an editorial from a London newspaper, arguing the same thing Southerners argued - that cities might be conquered, but not Southern independence.
