Well, that sounds all nice but the fact is, the EP had no power at that point in Georgia or any of the Confederate states.
It's rather odd though. Even as far back as the Revolutionary War, people filed claims for property destroyed by the army. Once it was in place, the US Government took a look at them and paid a lot of em. My Spanish ancestors were given some money for property loss when Jackson came marching through here. Well, he stayed here a while a couple of times. He and his army did cause property damage even before 1823 when we joined in as a territory and the Federal Government covered it.
The US also honored most of the land grants that had been issued by Spain to the early settlers. They weren't that nice after that other war.
