My first response was from the Officers's 1865 Customs of Service, and my second is from the NCOs and Soldiers 1865 Customs of Service. I just went through the General Army regulations for 1863 and could only find one reference to orderlies-instructing commanders to put a date and time on written orders delivered by orderlies (as opposed to staff officers) while in the field. I think what the term "servant" is referring to is private, non-army servants paid for by commanders. There is a section of the General Army Regulations that prohibits the wearing of a Federal uniform by a private servant. Not sure if that helps at all, but that was all the info I could dig up at the moment.
