A Confederate imprint. Originally scheduled to be published 1860, the last two paragraphs of the last page states: "From various uncontrollable circumstances, and to supply some omissions, and correct inaccuracies that might exist, the publication of the volume of Records, of which a few copies were hastily done up for the last anniversary of the Society, has been delayed until a very recent period." The following paragraph makes an explanation of the additions and changes to the book. At the very bottom of the page is a date of April 1861 and the initials "J. M. C." By 1861, Georgia was already one of the Confederate States.
