It seems like we're missing a couple of counters. There are no AM markers for the March Orders, and there are no AM counters for Confederate Cavalry.

Unless I'm just missing something.

Unfortunately, you are correct. In fact, in addition to the missing March and CSA Cavalry AM counters, the game is also lacking a set of AMs for the Union Pioneer brigade (which, as the Battle Book points out, trace command directly to Rosecrans but are supposed to activate under their own AM).

From GMT's track record, the company will surely fix this. In the meantime, the game's counter sheets include enough blank counters to make up one's own markers to use until the "official" AMs are printed. I simply used a fine-tip marker to write "USA March" and "CSA March" on one blank each, and "CSA Cav" and "Pioneers" on four blanks each, then wrote "AM" on the back of these ten counters and presto! Perfectly usable Activation Markers.

If you want to make your own counters, there is a picture of the missing Activation Markers in Images.

Considering buying this, so many years later, I wonder if they ever did fix the counter problem.
