President Lincoln Reviews Union Troops in Virginia

October 22, 1862

In the afternoon, President Lincoln travels by  steamer to Alexandria about to review General Daniel Sickle’s division near contraband camp.

President Lincoln writes Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton regarding the cotton trade: “In this case I can say no more than that individuals should not be allowed to impose terms on purchasers of Cotten, beyond those contained in the rules established by the Government. If individuals are doing this, it should be stopped. Will the Sec. of War please look to it.”
