Four New Regiments of New Jersey Volunteers Are Authorized. Letter from R.J. Stockton, Jr., Adjutant General of New Jersey, to Col. R.C. Buchanan, 1st U.S. Infantry, Superintendent of the Volunteer Regiment Service for New Jersey, on official letterhead with attractive vignette of the N.J. seal, Trenton, September 8, 1864, 1½ pp quarto. Stockton advises Buchanan that he has received a "telegram from the Secretary of War…authorizing the organization of two or more regiments in this State, there are now in process of formation…four regiments, to be designated respectively 38th, 39th, 40th, and 41st regiments New Jersey volunteers. The regiments are being recruited under G.O. No. 131…from the War Department…." The 38th and 39th will be at Camp Bayard in Trenton, commanded by Col. Wm. J. Serrell; the 39th and 40th will meet at Camp Freluighuysen in Neward, commanded by Col. Hiram Van Buskirk. Very Fine.
Estimated Value $400 - 600.
