    Description

    Handmade Scrapbook of Printed General Orders. Crude handmade scrapbook containing dozens of printed General Orders issued by Jeremiah Y. Dashiell, Adjutant and Inspector General of the State of Texas, and by Major General J. Bankhead Magruder of the Bureau of State Troops, Districts of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. Documents range in date from December 1862 to October 1863. Each trimmed order has been affixed to a slightly larger piece of previously used scrap paper, and assembled into a booklet. Several of the orders bear Dashiell's ink signature. A few handwritten orders have been glued into the book, as well. Scrapbook is quite deteriorated, with heavy age toning, chips and tears to the brittle leaves, glue marks, soiling, and rodent damage.
