Circa: 1864
Manufacturer: Army of the Potomac

A fascinating original Civil War Union Army of the Potomac General Order, issued at HQ, Sept 15, 1864- General Meade bans all spirits & malt liquors and publishes Lieut General Grant's HQ City Point, Va. Circular- due to the large quantities of liquor being brought within the lines of the Armies operating against Richmond, General Grant directs Provost Marshal Marsena Patrick to enforce the ban transport of all spiritous, vinous, and malt liquors except for Commissary & Medical Departments.
1p 8 x 5" ptd. 2 punch holes on left margin, 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.
