Obituary of Lewis Allen Morgan, Uniontown, Alabama.

Died at Uniontown, Ala., March 24, 1915, Capt. Lewis Allen Morgan, aged seventy-seven years, a true veteran of Company D, 4th Alabama, A. N. V., which at the first battle of Manassas shed a luster upon the fame of Stonewall Jackson which will endure with time. When the beardless youth he sprang to the front, gun in hand, and for four years met every call worthy the sacrifice and patriotism he knew to be right. At the close of the war he was on General Perry's staff. He was a kind and loving father, a true type of the Christian gentleman, and his family has reason to be proud of the legacy of character and honesty he has left behind.

His cordial greeting and bright smile we shall miss; and as I see the old veterans dropping out one by one. "I feel like one who treads alone some banquet hall deserted, whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead, and all but me departed." Such sentiments are felt only by those of his kind of race fast becoming extinct; but the good name of Lewis A. Morgan in indelibly linked with the sobriquet they helped make in the first battle of Manassas, where with fire and blood they were baptized in the smoke of battle by and under his command. Peace to his ashes!
