This Day in Georgia Civil War History

November 08, 1863

Governor Brown’s Message to Legislature Published

The Daily Intelligencer of Atlanta printed the entire text of Georgia Governor Joseph E. Brown’s opening message to the Georgia legislature, recently convened in Milledgeville. The first part of the message is reproduced here; it is a classic example of the Southern view of the war, with all its inconsistencies.
