General & Special Orders were issued to communicate commands and information to the Army.

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 Orders of the 19th century including Civil War era were printed on an 8 x 5" sheet of quality rag paper. Thanks for visiting Mike Brackin Civil War Antiques.
