Comrade Norman was a soldier of the Confederacy, having served in Company E, Pindle's Battalion of Sharpshooters. He loved to mingle with his comrades of the sixties and attended as many of the reunions of Missouri Confederates as possible, his heart being gladdened by this association with his comrades and friends. He was a devoted friend of the CONFEDERATE VETERAN, of which he had been a patron for many years, and anxiously awaited its coming every month.
