On Dec. 8, Col. John V. D. Du Bois, Holly Springs, issued General Orders No. 2. "On account of the scarcity of provisions, All Cotton-Speculators, Jews and other Vagrants having no honest means of support, except trading upon the miseries of their Country, and in general all persons from the North, not con- nected with the Army, who have no permission from the General Commanding to remain in this town, Will Leave in twenty four hours or they will be sent to duty in the trenches" Copy, Caleb Morgan Papers, Minn. Historical Society, St. Paul, Minn.; letter from Holly Springs, Dec. 9, Missouri Republican, Dec. 13, 1862; letter from Oxford, Dec. 11, Chicago Tribune, Dec. 18, 1862. In a letter to the editor, Morning Chronicle, Washington, Sept. 29, 1868, Du Bois stated that : "This order was revoked by Gen Grant and I was relieved from command on account of it." ALS, Morgan Papers, Minn. Historical Society. The possibility that Du Bois was responsible for USG's General Orders No. 11, Dec. 17, 1862, is discussed but dismissed in Bertram Wallace Korn, American Jewry and the Civil War ( Philadelphia, 1951), pp. 138-40.
