- 66 separately bound General Court-Martial Orders, Washington, Jan. 5 - Dec. 22, 1888. With: INDEX OF GENERAL COURT-MARTIAL ORDERS, ADJUNTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE, 1888.

Washington: G.P.O., 1889. Orders varying in length from 1 to 16 pp. These are the proceedings of Army court-martials at forts and barracks all over the country: Ft. Lowell and Ft. Huachuca, Arizona Territory; Jefferson Barracks, Missouri; Ft. Douglas, Utah; Ft. Bidwell, California; Columbus Barracks, Ohio; and elsewhere. Charges include desertion, drunkenness, disrespect for officers, etc. Many of the sentences mitigated by Pres. Cleveland. Includes lengthy proceedings against Lt. Col. George A. Forsyth at Ft. Huachuca, for fraud. Forsyth previously has a distinguished career and later was author of _Thrilling Days of Army Life_ (1900). This court-martial in which he was found guilty doesn't appear in biographical sketches of him. These court-martials give a vivid picture of discipline and disorder in the Army at this time.
