Newspaper Report Hinted at New Strategy
The Richmond Times Dispatch printed a report on the situation in Georgia, saying the Confederate soldiers were in good spirits and hinting at a new strategy.
From Georgia. Accounts from Georgia represent that General Hood’s troops are in the best of spirits, and that the fall campaign promises to be an active one. A new strategic movement is on foot, from which the best results are anticipated. The nature of this movement will be made known in due time, but prudence forbids any further allusion to it at present.–Our opinion is that Mr. Sherman will find Atlanta about as disagreeable as he made it to our people when he brought his guns to bear upon the place a few weeks ago.
