[Porter, Fitz John]:

GENERAL ORDERS, NO. 18. WAR DEPARTMENT, ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, WASHINGTON, JANUARY 22, 1863.

[Washington: 1863] Caption title [as issued], 8pp, binder holes in blank inner margin. Very Good. The War Department General Order detailing the charges brought against Porter, the findings of the Court, and the approval by President Lincoln of the guilty verdicts for allegedly disobeying Pope's orders at Second Manassas, and for failing to engage his troops there. Lincoln orders Porter "cashiered and dismissed from the service of the United States...and forever disqualified from holding any office of trust or profit under the Government of the United States." Porter spent the next twenty years in an effort, ultimately successful, to clear his name.
