This Day in Georgia Civil War History

September 13, 1864

Editorials Called for Reinforcements, Condemned Sherman

The Confederate Union of Milledgeville printed two editorials - the first calling for the Confederate government to send reinforcements to help beat back the Union invaders of Georgia. The second piece was a condemnation of Sherman’s field leadership - calling him a “digger” and “flanker.”
