Georgia Mentioned Twice in Harper’s Weekly

This week’s edition of Harper’s Weekly mentioned Georgia twice. First, in a piece denouncing slavery, they mentioned some “thrilling passages” from Fanny Kemble’s Journal of a Residence on a Georgia Plantation. Secondly, they reported on the death of a lieutenant-colonel from Athens, Georgia in Washington, D.C. after injured in some skirmishing in Virginia.
