GENERAL ORDERS, HDQRS. THIRD DIV., SECOND CORPS,
No. 29. May 7, 1864.
The major-general commanding the division regrets that its
famous reputation for bravery and good discipline should have been
tarnished by the conduct of the skulks, cowards, and scoundrels,
wearing officers' uniforms, who aided in the disgraceful stampede of
yesterday morning after the division had added to its reputation by
its glorious_conduct on the day before and that morning by its ad-
vance. Those regiments that disgraced themselves by the cowardly
conduct of their officers will be noticed in the official report of this
the great battle of the rebellion, without they show by their conduct
of to-day their regret for their cowardice.
By command of Major-General Birney :
Major and Assistant Adjutant-General.
