B1233 - Special Orders

47.50
This handwritten document was prepared on the letter head of the "Head Quarters Ohio Vol Recruiting Service" in Columbus and dated 10 March 1864. The order directs Capt Julius. L. Hadley of the 25th Ohio Artillery Battery to "return with his Command to the field and to report to his Army Commander for duty without delay." The document further specifies what paper work will accompany them. It is signed by I. E. Grover (?) Asst Adj General, acting for Colonel H. H. Potter. Additional handwritten notations on the reverse specify that "Orders received...14 March 1864...furlough expired." A second notation dated 19 March 1864 specifies that transportation has been furnished for 5 officers and 131 men to Memphis, Tenn by order of Brig Genl Rich and two days later they are directed to proceed to Duralls Bluff (Arkansas) as noted by J. F. Lewis, Capt. A most interesting document that has been through many hands. There are a couple of very tiny tears at folds, but otherwise the condition is excellent. I have the soldier history for both Hadley and Graves.
