Proclamation by the Governor.

Annapolis, MD: State of Maryland, Executive Department, 1863. Paperback. Self-cover. 8vo. 4pp. Very good. Minor binding traces. Clean and bright, with an attractive Maryland state seal at upper left of the first page. Item #13791

This November 2nd proclamation "To the Citizens of the State and more especially the Judges of Election" indignantly protests a military order stating that "evil disposed persons" found in Maryland and tolerated by state officials would be attempting to disrupt elections and authorized military personnel and provost marshals to arrest persons loitering about polling places. The text of General Schenck's October 27th General Order No. 53 giving this direction is included, as is Lincoln's directive revoking the offensive portion of Schenck's order. Uncommon.
