President Lincoln Works Through Court Martial Cases

April 21, 1864

President Lincoln reviews more than 70 court martial cases. He writes General George Meade about one man: “This case is submitted to Gen. Meade to be disposed of by him, under the recent order upon the subject.” He adds: “If Gen. Warren has recommended the discharge of this man, let him be discharged.”

President Lincoln, Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton and General Henry W. Halleck meet with Ohio Governor John Brough, Indiana Governor Oliver P. Morton, Illinois Governor Richard Yates, and Iowa Governor William Milo Stone about new enlistments.
