Major General John A. Dix

The Department of Pennsylvania merged with the Department of Maryland on July 25. General Order #46 honorably discharged Generals Patterson and Cadwallader at the end of their terms of service on July 27th, and almost all of the troops of Patterson’s army mustered out at that time.
