Organizing the Maryland troops.

headquarters Valley district, Staunton, June 18, 1862.
The commanding officer of the Maryland line will move his command this evening by the cars and encamp near Brigadier-General Lawton's camp east of the Blue Ridge.

T. J. Jackson, Major-General.

General Lawton had moved from Staunton preparatory to General Johnson's move on Richmond. He had only arrived some ten days before from Savannah, Ga. At this time the effort was being made to get all the Maryland troops in one command—under, I think, General Steuart, of Maryland.
