Richmond Newspaper on Brown/Confederate Conflict

The Richmond Times Dispatch reported on a disagreement between Georgia Governor Joseph E. Brown and Confederate authorities.

Gov. Brown, of Georgia, has again come in conflict with Confederate authority by the action of the Superintendent of the Western and Atlantic Railroad, in refusing transportation for some fifty barrels of whiskey, in accordance with a proclamation of the Governor in relation thereto. We understand that an agent is on the way to Georgia to take possession of this road for the enforcement of this transportation, as well as for other purposes. We await the issue with some curiosity, if things are as we understand them.
