Journal Entry on Possible Worse Times Ahead
A Georgia man made a short entry into his journal; worrying about war time and possible worse events on the way.
“Hands gathering up corn and some trifling folks at it too, but this is war time and maybe worse is coming, but we must try and bear it as best we can.” Source: Franklin M. Garrett, Atlanta and Its Environs: A Chronicle of Its People and Events (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1969 reprint of original 1954 volume), p. 648.
