Union General Orders No. 73, April 24, 1865, printing a letter from the Attorney General to Secretary of War Stanton pertaining to the "capitulation made betwixt General Grant, of the United States Army, and General Lee, of the rebel army and answering three questions presented by Stanton to him, including if Confederate officers could wear their CSA uniforms in public or if this was a violation of the truce. He responds to each question with the third being "Rebel officers certainly have no right to be wearing their uniforms in any of the loyal States. It seems to me that such officers, having done wrong in coming into the loyal States, are but adding insult to injury in wearing their uniforms. They have as much right to bear the traitor's flag through the streets of a loyal city as to wear a traitor's garb. The stipulation of surrender permits no such thing, and the wearing of such uniform is an act of hostility against the Government..." Fine condition.
