Edwin M. Stanton to Andrew Johnson, April 10, 1862

WAR DEPARTMENT, Washington, April 10, 1862.

Governor ANDREW JOHNSON, Nashville, Tenn.:

There has been unavoidable delay in fixing a proper place for your prisoners. You will send them to Detroit under guard with directions to turn them over to Captain Gibbs, in command there. They will be sent from there to Fort Mackinac, on Lake Huron. I rejoice at your energy and fair prospects.

Secretary of War.
