Tobacco and Whiskey Hard to Obtain

The Southern Confederacy of Atlanta published two brief editorial items, on the high prices of, and difficulty of obtaining, tobacco and whiskey. In their opinion, less use of these items would be a good thing.

This week’s edition of Harper’s Weekly printed a cartoon showing one use for whiskey - in the fate of a Confederate soldier.
