Circa: 1862
Manufacturer: NA

An original Antietam Campaign General Order, issued at HQ Army of the Potomac, Knoxville, Maryland, Oct 24, 1862, charging Captain Charles Arthur, 5th New York Cavalry with cowardice at Cedar Mountain, and with calling President Lincoln a traitor and a loafer with details, and dismisses the Captain from the service, by order of Major General McClellan. A very scarce Knoxville, Maryland, Civil War imprint. 2pp ptd 8 x 5". 2 punch holes in left margin, age stains, overall VG.
General Orders were issued to communicate commands and information to the Army. Each order, issued in writing by a command, was then printed for distribution to each unit, either at an army department headquarter or by commanders at local headquarters, sometimes in the field on portable printing presses. The orders were then issued to regiments, often to be read aloud to the troops.
General Orders were printed as issued with date & location; at the end of a year the regimental adjutant might retain them loose or simply string bind them by punching holes and stringing on " red cloth string tape (the source of the old expression "government red tape"). Sometimes an officer or HQ clerk might take a group of orders to a local print shop or bookbinder and have an accumulation bound with leather or cloth covers.
Usually, American Military General Orders of the 19th century including Civil War era were printed on an 8 x 5" sheet of quality rag paper.
In the event of the death of a notable soldier or civilian leader, a mourning order was sometimes issued, often with a black linear margin. Thanks for visiting Mike Brackin Civil War Antiques.
