This Day in Georgia Civil War History

July 23, 1861

“War of Rapine and Savage Barbarity”

The Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville printed an item depicting what type of war the South could expect.

An article from the Southern Confederacy in Atlanta expressed similar sentiments, albeit sarcastically, along with a crude remark about President Abraham Lincoln.
