Obituary of E. A. Carter, Atlanta, Georgia.

At the regular meeting of Camp W. H. T. Walker, No. 925, U. C. V., Atlanta, Ga., on October 9, 1916, the committee on memorial to Comrade E. A. Carter submitted the following:

"Comrade Carter was born December 16, 1845, and entered the War between the States in August, 1863, in the 1st Georgia Cavalry and remained in the service until the close of the war. He filled many positions of honor and trust in civil life after his return home. He was a man loved by all his friends and comrades. He died August 1, 1916, after an illness of over two years. Comrade Carter was as true in was as he was in peace.

"Resolved, That in the death of Comrade Carter our Camp loses one of its most useful and valued members. The grim monster death has robbed a home, a community, and this Camp of one of its brightest jewels. We miss his kind and gentle admonitions and deeply mourn our loss.

"Committee: T. H. Kennon, R. M. Thompson, W. D. Harris, J. A. Pittman."
