GENERAL ORDERS

HEADQUARTERS, DEPARTMENT OF THE GULF,

Nero Orleans, December 23, 1863.

No. 85.

Commanders of Corps, Divisions, Brigades and Regiments will give their personal attention to the re-enlistment of veteran volunteers, and will see that the officers and men under their command are fully informed of the advantages offered by the Government to this class of soldiers. They will make the necessary requisitions for blanks, and see that all facilities are furnished for the prompt organization of veteran regiments.

In order to secure to those regiments which shall enrol themselves as veterans the indulgence contemplated by the Government, at least two such regiments shall be allowed furloughs in a bcdy, from each Aimy Corps serving in this Department every thirty days; such furloughs to be of sufficient lergth to allow the soldiers thirty days within tbe State in which the regiments were raised, exclusive of the time expended in transportation from and to this Department.

Commanders of Army Corps will promptly report to these Headquarters all regiments which may enrol as veterans, and will reconamend the order in which they shall be allowed their furloughs-having due regard, in these recommendations, to the age of the regiment in service, and the spirit of patriotism manifested by the men in the enrollment.

Carefully prepared returns of all veterans will be made and transmitted to these Headquarters, when mustered in, stating their names, regiments, companies, and residences, in order that returns may be made to the respective Governors of States, and that the enlistments may be credited to the proper States, counties and towns, in making up the several quotas. This is also necessary, in order that the enlisted men and their families may have the benefit of any allowances made by the local authorities and communities to soldiers enlisting from those localities.
