By John Y. Simon | Go to book overview
To Maj. Warren E. McMackin
Headquarters, Ironton Mo
August 12th 1861.
MAJOR W. E. MCMACKIN,
COMDG. EXPED to POTOSI MO.

Press into service as many teams as you want, from secessionists, who will be pointed out by Union men of character, and march up by way of Caledonia, to this place. Bring with you as guide Mr. J. O. Sawyer, the bearer of this, and any one of the "home guards" you may choose. They will be sent home by rail. You will do all you can to capture the party of rebels, who are infesting the country through which you pass, but be careful about crediting reports you receive from citizens. When it is necessary to get provisions for your men, you will take them from active secessionists, if practicable, if not practicable, from Union or law abiding citizens, giving an order on the Post Commissary here for the pay.

Compell persons whose teams you press, to send teamsters to take the teams back. You have my private instructions how to conduct this "pressing" business, so as to make it as little offensive as possible.

Order the train taking Mr Sawyer, to return to this place immediately

U. S. GRANT
Brig Genl.
