Beauregard" to the people of Georgia, noting: "Arise for the defence of your native soil!...Obstruct & destroy all roads in Sherman's front, flank & rear..." with more, signed in type: G. T. Beauregard.
The back page has much on the news with: "Hood's Escape from Sherman" "Sherman's Campaign" "Plan of the Campaign Against Columbus" "Sherman's Roland For Beauregard's Oliver" "Sherman" "Sheridan's Movement" "Grant's Doings" "From the West" "From Georgia" "The War News" and even more.
