Victory or Annihilation
(Column 6)
Summary: Dr. Elliot, the Bishop of Georgia, preached a sermon in Savannah recently in which he said that the South had no alternative but to move forward toward total victory or else submit unconditionally. A year ago, he asserts, the South could have gone backward, had it been willing to humiliate itself in such a way. However, that choice is no longer available because the Union soldiers will be unrestrained in their victory. Freed slaves and Union soldiers will overrun the South, and conservative and Christian people in the North will not be able to control them.
