To Col. William D. Mann

Headquarters Military Division of the Mississippi,
Nashville, Tenn.,
Feb. 6, 1864.

COLONEL W. D. MANN, SEVENTH MICHIGAN CAVALRY:

COLONEL: An examination of the cavalry and infantry accoutrements exhibited by you satisfies me that the change from the old style is such as to warrant their adoption throughout the army as fast as new accoutrements have to be supplied. I think no more of the old should be made until yours are fully tested.

The improvements in the cartridge-box are undoubted, and should be adopted at once.

The change in the belt, and the manner of carrying the knapsack and cartridge-box, I believe will demonstrate itself to be a great improvement, and if it does not, the soldier will naturally make the change in carrying these, suggested by experience.

Yours, etc.,
U. S. GRANT,
Major-General.

Colonel Mann's Infantry and Cavalry Accoutrements.... (New York, 1864), p. 34. Born in Sandusky, Ohio, in 1839, William D. Mann operated a hotel in Grafton, Ohio, before the Civil War. Commissioned col., 7th Mich. Cav., in 1862, he fought at Gettysburg, and resigned early in 1864 to promote his accoutrements.
