The Daily Dispatch: September 17, 1864., [Electronic resource], The reception of the Yankees at Atlanta. (search)
ining citizens at Atlanta seem to have been much exaggerated. The Register says: "A letter in the Atlanta Intelligencer, over the signature of 'Cantin,' is going the rounds of the papers, giving a grossly exaggerated account of the reception of the Yankees by the citizens who remained there. This letter, we are assured by Mr. Jones, does great injustice to Mayor Calhoun, whose patriotism cannot be doubted. The Mayor remained in Atlanta, after sending away his family and household effects, at the urgent request of the citizens, to make the best terms he could for the poor who were unable to remove. Mayor Calhoun has two sons in our army, one of whom--Captain W. L. Calhoun--was severely wounded on the retreat from Dalton. The other — James Calhoun — has been a private in the ranks, gallantly serving his country without thought or expectation of any reward other than the consciousness of doing his duty. The letter, we presume, is equally unjust in its reference to others.
