Circa: 1863
Manufacturer: NA

An original, historic Army of the Potomac General Order, issued Falmouth, Va, Jan 20, 1863, by General Burnside commanding strict observance of the Circular by General Marsena Patrick, Provost Marshal General- due to widespread desertion, troop patrols are to exert extra vigilance in guarding the camps of the infantry & cavalry & to arrest skulkers & stragglers following the Army. This circular was issued following the Battle of Fredericksburg & the failed "Mud March"; with morale at an all time low Lincoln dismissed Burnside as Army of the Potomac Commander 6 days after this order was issued. 1p 8 x 5" ptd. 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. Thanks for visiting Mike Brackin Civil War Antiques
