Gen. William Rosencrans, commander of the Union Army of the Cumberland in 1863, asks that the multiplicity of orders and the resulting variations thereof be addressed and the attendant confusion in the ranks be resolved, and orders various measures be taken to ensure proper communications. Grant replaced Rosencrans with Gen. George H. Thomas near the end of this year after a series of failures in Tennessee. Not in Allen or OCLC.
