Dickie Gilder

Obituary of N. M. Gilder, Gatesville, Texas.

On the 6th of March, 1915, Dr. N. M. Gilder died at his home, in Gatesville, Tex. He was one of the first to enlist when Texas called for troops to defend the Southern Confederacy, and he became a member of Company F, 1st Texas Regiment, organized by Colonel Wigfall near Richmond, Va. Then the 1st, 4th, and 5th Texas Regiments and Hampton's Legion were organized into the Texas Brigade, which so mobly defended our cause in the many bloody encounters of the Army of Northern Virginia. Dr. Gilder went through it all, serving his country from first to last. Those who knew him during those trying times testify that he was a true soldier of the South, always ready to do his duty.

[Jim Dickie, one of Hood's scouts.]
