Document, 1pp., 8" x 1-1/2", VG. Datelined "Headquarters Dept. No. 2, Tupelo Miss, July 14th, 1862". In large part, "Commander of the Armies of Miss. Dept. will forward as early as possible to these Head Quarters ... the names and handicraft of all mechanics ....by Command of General Bragg. signed T.H. Jordan...." In June 1862, Bragg was elevated to command the Army of Mississippi (later known as the Army of Tennessee). He and Edmund Kirby Smith attempted an invasion of Kentucky in 1862, but Bragg retreated following the inconclusive Battle of Perryville in October. In December, he fought another inconclusive battle at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the Battle of Stones River, against the Army of the Cumberland under Major General William Rosecrans. After months without significant fighting, Bragg was outmaneuvered by Rosecrans in the Tullahoma Campaign in June of 1863, causing him to surrender Middle Tennessee to the Union.
