Poem to A. Lincoln

The Battle of First Manassas continued to enthrall Southerners - as evidenced by two items published in The Southern Recorder of Milledgeville. One was poem directed “To A. Lincoln,” and the second was a tale of individual heroism (perhaps exaggerated) reprinted from a Virginia newspaper.

The Southern Federal Union of Milledgeville also took aim at President Lincoln, but in a more direct way.
