November 1, 1862.

This commanding will be put in motion to-day at 1 p. m. Officers commanding the several battalions will have the requisite arrangements made. Major Nelson's battalion will lead, Major Moore's will follow, and Colonel Cutts' bring up rear. The wagon train of each battalion will folow its batalion. As there will be a few difficult places, each battalion will detail ten or twelve men to accompany its wagon train to help along the wagons at the difficult places. On the march there can be allowed no wandering off of officers or men under any pretext. Each detachment must keep with its own gun; the guns and caissions must not be loaded with baggage, nor must the men ride unless sick and by permission of the battalion commander. At difficult places cannoneers must aid at the wheels.

By order of Brigadier General W. N. Pendleton:

D. D. PENDLETON,

Captain and Assistant Adjutant-General.
