Confederate Veteran mag., dated Sept., 1920, page 353.
Gen. WILLIAM CRAWFORD GORGAS died in London, England, on July 3. General Gorgas was the son of a Confederate veteran, the son of a Confederate mother, a member of the Washington, D.C. Camp No. 305, Sons of Confederate Veterans. He was born in the South, received his education at the University of the South, and was one of the South's greatest sons. In recognition of this fact on the occasion of the arrival of his body in N.Y., the U.D.C., represented by Mrs. Livingston Rowe Schuyler, Chairman of the Committee on Award, placed on the casket a wreath of red and white roses tied with our colors.
[ hope someone finds this interesting and can tell us about his parents].
