CIRCULAR.] HEADQUARTERS SECOND ARMY CORPS,

September 13, 1864.

Commanders are requested to give the circular of the 11th instant, in relation to captured colors, as wide a circulation as possible, embracing in their reports those regiments which may have gone out of service. It should be particularly stated in each case whether the colors have been turned in. Soldiers who have captured colors and have failed to turn them in, as required by existing orders, will lose the reward to be given to those who have turned in colors. Care should be taken to fix the proper credit in all case, so that the corps may get its due honor, individuals their proper reward, and no questions be asked hereafter as to the justice of the award.

By command of Major-General Hancock:

WM. P. WILSON,

Captain and Acting Assistant Adjutant-General.
