Approved. By command of Major-General LaFayette McLaws.

HENRY BRYAN, Major and Assistant Inspector- General.

"To Major Capers, or officer commanding, Battalion Cadets." "(47)"

On the 20th of May, 1865, the battalion was disbanded, and the cadets returned to their respective homes, Thus the boy soldiers of the South, and of Georgia, were the last to do duty in the cause of the Confederate States of America. In their manhood they have made good citizens, and are now fast passing from the active scenes of life forever.

Respectfully submitted,

ROBERT L. RODGERS, Historian of Georgia Cadets' Association. Atlanta, Ga., December 25, 1905.
