Hellcat, that's an interesting listing of the BG's "budget."  I'm not certain, however, that an orderly and a servant are one and the same.  I should think that a servant might be a civilian who was paid to look after the officer's clothes, horses, and other belongings.  Whereas, an orderly remained on Uncle Sam's payroll as a soldier.  At least that's my guess.  It's difficult to get a good picture of an officer's "entourage!"  Thanks for the response.  Best, ONS
