Richmond Newspaper Printed Appeal from Beauregard

The Richmond Times Dispatch reprinted the following appeal from Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard to the people of Georgia. General Beauregard has issued the following address to the people of Georgia:

“People of Georgia! arise for the defence of your native soil. Rally around your patriotic Governor and gallant soldiers. Obstruct and destroy all roads in Sherman’s front, flank and rear, and his army will soon starve in your midst. Be confident and resolute. Trust in an over-ruling Providence, and success will crown your efforts. “I hasten to join you in the defence of your homes and firesides. G. T. Beauregard.”
