This Day in Georgia History

September 25, 1864

Davis Visited Confederate Troops

Confederate Pres. Jefferson Davis arrived at Palmetto, Georgia, for a briefing from Gen. John Bell Hood on the status of his efforts to turn back Gen. William T. Sherman’s continuing advances. The news was not good, so Davis tried to boost the morale of the troops and that evening was entertained by the Twentieth Louisiana band.
