This Day in Georgia Civil War History

July 07, 1861

Editorial Praised Hardee’s Infantry and Rifle Tactics

The Southern Confederacy of Atlanta published an editorial praising one of Georgia’s military leaders - William J. Hardee - for the publication of a new edition of his textbook Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics - a manual on infantry and rifle tactics which had been used by the U.S. Army for years, and would be used by both sides in the Civil War. Then on the following page they carried an ad for the manual.
