In Memory of George Allen – I want to lay a forget-me-not on the grave of our beloved friend and comrade George Allen. It was my fortune to know and love him, having been more intimately associated with him than many others, first as a school mate, then as a soldier. We enlisted in the Confederate service together and throughout the entire war were mess-mates and cook-mates. If there ever was a time to prove noble character, honesty and sweet dispositions, it was during these four years of trials. George stood the test and came out pure gold. He was wounded three times in battle and in our last engagement his cartridge box was shot from his belt and his gun disabled by the enemy’s ball, but he picked up the gun of a wounded soldier and kept on in the gallant charge. In camp, George was honored by the name of “Judge,” because of the many discussions he was called on to decide. His decisions were always final, thus showing the high esteem his fellow soldiers held of his good judgment. George was a true soldier and true to the cause he so dearly loved. While his sufferings of earth can never be told, may our blessed Savior take care of his precious soul that he may answer the roll call above where Heaven is arrayed with God’s divine love. – C.C. Connor
