A Faithful Soldier, A. C. C. Howard, Upson County, Georgia.

J. E. F. Matthews, of Thomaston, Ga., writes of a comrade who has recently gone to the Confederate Home at Atlanta saying: "A. C. C. Howard, born and reared in Upson County, Ga., enlisted at Thomaston, Ga., in the 6th Georgia Regiment, for six months; in July or August, 1862, at Bunker Hill, Va., he became a member of Company D, 13th Georgia Regiment, and served to the close of the war, surrendering at Appomattox Courthouse, and reaching home May 4, 1865. He was wounded in the left leg at or near Winchester, Va., July 24, 1864. He went to Texas in 1881, but in 1895 he returned to Upson County, Ga., and had been on the pension roll since 1900. Three other members of the same company-Messrs E. B. Thompson, W. L. Gordy, and R. B. Reeves-all of Upson County, live at Thomaston. More than one hundred and seventy-five of old Company D, 13th Georgia, have gone from us.

"Into that beautiful land,

The far-away home of the soul."
