This Day in Georgia Civil War History

August 18, 1863

Editorial Condemned “Croakers”

The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville printed an editorial condemning the “croakers,” those who complained about hardships, especially after setbacks in the war. Yet the editors remained confident the “croakers” were a small minority, and that through perseverance Southern independence could still be won.
