GIBSON, George W and Ross, F.P. – IN MEMORIAM – Whereas, the members of Prairie Grove Camp of Confederate Veterans learn with poignant grief of the deaths of comrades F.P. Ross of Prairie Grove, Arkansas and George W. Gibson of Indian Territory, the first a volunteer in the army of the South from Tennessee and the second equally forward and prompt and responsive to the same call, from the State of Arkansas, and, Whereas, each of said departed comrades met well the issues of the times, stood the trials and hardships of unwonted campaigns, faced the foe with unflinching courage, never shirking duty’s clear notes, but acquitted himself most creditably upon all occasions and, Whereas, when peace came upon the land, they became active and diligent workers in the quieter walks of life, and exemplified in high and praiseworthy ways the best traits of our common humanity and in dying, still full of the line of duty, have added laurels to their wreaths of glory won in a righteous cause: Therefore, be it Resolved 1. That while we deplore the sudden taking of our honored comrades, we bow in weak submission to the behests of Him who doeth all things well. To these two brave and good soldiers and civilians of the South death is only a passing over. On the other side they augment the innumerable company of the truly great and forever blessed. 2. That to the families of our two deceased brothers in arms and in peace we extend our profound condolences. May their griefs be assuaged by the recollection that their dear dead acted nobly life’s part and that unending reunions are only a span beyond. 3. That a copy of these expressions of love alloyed with sorrow, scant tribute to worthy brothers, be sent to their families, published in the HERALD and spread upon our Camp’s records. (Signed) J.H. Marlar, R.A. Sharp, David W. Adams – Committee
