Annotation

[1]   OR, I, XLII, III, 494. Lincoln's endorsement appears on a statement of Second Lieutenant George E. Albee, Thirty-sixth Wisconsin Volunteers, September 30, 1864, protesting against an order which disgraced his regiment and forbade it to carry colors as a result of the capture of the regimental colors at Ream's Station, Virginia, on August 25.
