This Day in Georgia Civil War History

September 23, 1862

Editorial Praised Southern Triumphs, Mocked North

In a series of triumphant editorials, the Southern Recorder of Milledgeville trumpeted the recent military victories and mocked the Northern newspapers for proclaiming victory before battles, then making excuses afterwards. Obviously, news of the Battle of Antietam had not yet reached Milledgeville.
