Genl. Order No 2

Par I. In compliance with Orders from Brig. Hd. Qrs. the following Articles of War & Paragraphs in Army Regulations will be read by a Commissioned Officer to each Company in the Regt. at Retreat Parade

Articles of War Nos 1 to 11 inclusive 26 to 28 inclusive 28.32.33.35.37.38.41 to 48 inclusive 50 to 59. inclusive 76.80.99. Paragraphs in Army Regulations 253. to 254. inclusive will be read daily at Retreat for three days. The Brigade having been reported by the Inspector Genls Dept. for a non observance of these rules of Military Ettiquette, Regtl Commanders will be particular in seeing that all are properly instructed; it would appear from the personal observation of the Col. Comdg. Brig. that the remissness Complained of, is owing in the main if not wholly to the Commissioned Officers, who fail to return the Salutations of the Soldiers, Officers should remember that Par. 254 Army Regulations is as binding upon them as upon the Enlisted Men.

Par. II. There will be two drills daily of one hour each, either squad or Company. Com. Officers will always drill the squads or Companies, when the drill is with Arms.

The progress of the drill will be accompanied by theoretical instructions of Officers & Sergeants as required in the Infantry Tactics
