Postby Joe Meyer » Sat Sep 30, 2017 10:22 pm

OFFICERS OF THE ARMY OF THE TENNESSEE,
ATTENTION TO PARADE!


The following is read from the AotT Record Book:

"Lieutenant General Pete Russo, AotT CoS

"Upon receipt of these orders you are relieved of duty as the AotT Chief of Staff and directed to assume command of the XVI Corps, Union Army of the Tennessee.

"Signed: General Jos. C. Meyer, ACWGC,
"Temporary Commander, Union Army of the Tennessee"


General Russo's re-assignment to the XVI Corps is attended with an abiding appreciation for his voluntary services as the Army of the Tennessee's Chief of Staff these past five years, a remarkable effort which greatly assisted and complimented the efforts of General Peterjohn and did much to contribute to the fine record this field army has achieved. Pete's constant attention to detail and ready service in that role has marked him as an important and valuable asset to this organization. In recognition of his service as the AotT CoS the following commendations are made to him:
