Milledgeville Newspapers Reported Victory at Second Manassas
The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville printed a brief editorial concerning the victory at Second Manassas, exulting in the seeming ascendancy of the Confederates, but still cautioned that the North would desperately continue to prosecute the war.
The Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville also praised the recent victories, and again encouraged following them by striking quickly at a seemingly vulnerable enemy.
