1818 Printed Broadsheet BRIGADE ORDERS

August 10, 1818, Printed Broadsheet BRIGADE ORDERS of the First Division Massachusetts Militia, Third Brigade, 18.5" x 11". Extremely Fine.

In preparation for a review, this Broadsheet, printed front and back, gives both general and specific instructions on how the brigade is to perform. The underlying philosophy is expressed in an early paragraph: "The basis of military strength is unity of action among great numbers. Every individual must know his own duty, and feel assured that command and obedience are understood by others, as they are by himself... If the individuals which compose a body of troops cannot preserve their proper positions, as to each other, while changing place, they could not even hope for success, and would soon present an unresisting mass to pursuers". Apart from some expected, light folds, this piece is in remarkably fine condition. Signed in type on the back by Stephen Fairbanks, Brigade Major.
