This Day in Georgia Civil War History

July 28, 1863

Detailed Eyewitness Account of Gettysburg Published

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville printed a lengthy account of the Battle of Gettysburg from a correspondent on the scene. Naturally, there is a southern slant to the account, but it is fairly accurate, and shows it was still not considered a devastating loss by many, although certainly not a great victory.
