There are no longer, any slaves in the United States ; All persons heretofore held as such became free by virtue of the Executive proclamation of January 1st, 1863, commonly known, as the Emancipation Proclamation. All at tempts to retard the action of this proclamation orto evade its provisions will be" considered as but a new manifestation of the spirit of re sistance to the lawful authorities of the government. In this regard as in all others the armies of the United States will support and require obedience to her laws. At the same time to all who are disposed to sub mit quietly to the laws of the land, the greatest possible. assistance will be given, andit is recommended to all such that the Freedmen be employed under specific contracts at reasonable wages and kindly treated. No en couragement will be given to the latter class to leave their formermas ters, but they must learn that they cannot be supported in idleness or allowed to congregate at military posts. To be worthy of their free dom, they must'be industrious and honest. Their status will in no way be compromised by remaining at their homes and working for wages. Until the arrival of authorized agents of the Freedman's Bureau, all need ful information on this subject can be obtained from Post Commanders and Provost Marshals, and it is made the duty of these Officers to see that the spirit of this order is enforced. By the co-operation of the people in this part of the State the Major Gen. Commanding hopes soon to establish quiet and good order and to assist the country in recovering from its deplorable condition. By command of IAJ. GBNERAL HERRON, WMV. H. CLAPP, Capt. and A. A. Gen. 3 HEADQUARTERS NORTHERN DIVIsroS OF LA. Shreveport, La., June 4, 1865. GENERAL ORDERS, fNo.21. In the occupation of this country, the - Major General Commanding desires to im press upon the officers and soldiers of this command the fact that the war is over, and ihi future no foraging, or lawless appropria tion of private property will be tolerated. After the achievements of the past four years, you sheuld not permit your glorious 3 record to be sullied by lawless acts, for by , so doing you would change the admiration of the world into contempt. It is the mis sion of the army now, to assist in the res toration of law and order, confidence and good feeling among the people. It would be ungenerous to do less than this, or to forget, now that the authority of the Uni ted States is established and acknowledged over the whole country, that the prosperity d of a part is the prosperity of the whole. - In every way. therefore, the utmost care will be taken to teach the inhabitants that we are their friends and not their enemies, t and that wherever the authority of the L- United States extends, there is ample se curity for persons and property. No seizures of private property will here after be made in any case, without written instructions from competent authority, and commanding officers will be held responsi ble for the good conduct of their men.- 2. When in camp, there will always be an ef fective system of camp and police guards. and no men will be permitted to leave | camp except upon the pass of the Regi ) mental Commander. The varioss camps will be located with a view to the health of the troops, and *s their sanitary condition closely attended rs to. r- By command of a- Major General IIERRON. -'|" • WM. H.
