GENERAL ORDERS,

HDQRS. 1ST DIV., 10TH ARMY CORPS,

No. 12. In the Field, Va., June 15, 1864.

All troops of this command will be immediately assigned and take position in the breast-works, ready to repel any assault made by the enemy. They will bivouac in this position until further orders. Brigade and battery commanders will see that the troops are properly distributed throughout the breast-works on their immediate fronts, and will take every precaution to prevent surprise. The commanding officers of the One hundred and thirty-second, One hundred and thirty-third, and One hundred and forty-second Ohio National Guard will continue to make report through their regular brigade commanders, who will transmit them all orders. Colonel Abbott, Seventh New Hampshire Volunteers, will have charge of these regiments, so far as defending that part of General Kautz's line on which they now are, and in making all details for fatigue.

By order of Brigadier General R. S. Foster:

P. A. DAVIS,

Captain and Assistant Adjutant-General.

HEADQUARTERS FIRST DIVISION, TENTH ARMY CORPS,

In the Field, Va., June 15, 1864.

Seventh New Hampshire Volunteers:

COLONEL: It is reported by General Turner that at 3.30 o'clock the intrenchments to the left of Battery No. 6 were not occupied by troops from this part of the line. You will please if this correct, and, if it is, why the Ohio regiments were not placed on the line.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

R. S. FOSTER,

Brigadier-General, Commanding.
