    Original War of 1812 General Military Orders Broadside October 4, 1812, broadside, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, "General Orders." Very fine. A boldly printed large broadside, measuring 16" x 8.25". This Pennsylvania militia broadside was issued by William Reed, Adjutant General, and printed by John M. Snowden, who was a printer, bookseller, and editor of The Pittsburgh Mercury. Pursuant to the general orders of the commander in chief: "of the Pennsylvania militia, the Adjutant General, has organized the detachment, ordered to rendezvous at Pittsburgh, on the 2d of October instant, into companies, battalions, and regiments, in the following manner." Details follow concerning the organization of the troops. Trivial old tape repair on the blank verso, two small central repairs at left affecting a few words, otherwise quite impressive. Attractive and ready for framing and display.
