WM. D. WHIPPLE,

Assistant Adjutant-General.

GENERAL ORDERS, HDQRS. RIGHT GRAND DIVISION,


Numbers 1.
Near Falmouth, Va. January 26, 1863.

In pursuance with General Orders, Numbers 20, from the Adjutant-General's Office, War Department, Washington, January 25, 1863. I announce to the Right Grand Division that I have been relieved from duty in the Army of the Potomac, by order of the President of the United States.

I have only to recall to you the memory of the past, in which you have fought so many battles with credit and honor always-in which you have captured so many colors, without losing a single gun or standard-and to urge that, keeping this recollection in your hearts, you prove always worthy of it. It is only in so doing that you can retain for yourselves a reputation well won, and which I feel will be preserved under the gallant and able commander, Major-General Couch, to whom I confide you.
