Ad for Hardee’s Book Published

The Southern Confederacy, an Atlanta newspaper, published an ad for the textbook Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics - a manual on infantry and rifle tactics - by native Georgian William J. Hardee. This manual had been used by the U.S. Army for years, and would be used by both sides in the Civil War. The same newspaper also published an editorial praising the work.
