General Orders From J.E.B. Stuart
Mar 12, 1863

Content Description: 

These general orders from J. E. B. Stuart, dated March 12, 1863, praise Captain John Singleton Mosby for his skill and daring, in particular the capture of Brigadier General Edwin H. Stoughton and thirty of his men in Fairfax, Virginia, in the early morning hours of March 8, 1863. The Union forces stationed a few miles away were unaware that Mosby and his men were in the vicinity; Stoughton, who’s quarters were miles from his soldiers’s, proved an easy target. He was awakened from his slumber by Mosby and informed that he was now a prisoner of Mosby’s Rangers.
