STATE OF VERMONT.

Adjutant and Inspector General's Office,
Woodstock, July 7, 1862.

General Order No. 7

In pursuance of a requisition by the President of the United State upon the Governor of Vermont, and in consideration of the necessity of more troops from Vermont for the vigorous prosecution of the war for the Union thereby indicated, and in reliance upon the known patriotism and loyalty of the citizens of the States, which demands, that all the assistance needed by Government shall be afforded promptly and without question, it is hereby ordered, that an additional regiment of infantry, to be denominated the Tenth Regiment of Vermont volunteers, be immediately raised and organized within this State, to serve in the army of the United States for the term of three years, unless sooner discharged. It is believe and expected by the Commander-in-Chief, that the burden thereby imposed upon the people of Vermont will be cheerfully assumed, and that every true and loyal citizen will exert his utmost endeavors to procure a prompt response to the call of the President.

All necessary recruiting stations will be immediately established, of which due notice will be given.

By order of his Excellency,

FREDERICK HOLBROOK,

Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
