"Tho Georgia regiment was not

it did no more marching or

it failed to turn out to the review.
Tho sanitation of its camp wai
disgraceful and showed iqarkcd inattention
cn the part of all concerned,
especially Its officers. It is a provis

men were never together before ami
never expected to be again. It has
neither permanency, tradition nor history
