Necrology of the Commandery of the District of Columbia, 1888

Excerpt from Necrology of the Commandery of the District of Columbia, 1888: Philip Henry Sheridan, General, U. S. Army For the second time within the brief space of two years the Military Order of the Loyal Legion is called upon the mourn the loss by death of its Commander-in-Chief. In February, 1887, we were summoned to pay a last tribute of respect to the memory of Winfield Scott Hancock, one of the most brilliant of the infantry commanders of the War. On August 5, last, died at Nonquit, Massachusetts, the greatest cavalry commander of this generation, Philip Henry Sheridan, General of the Army of the United States, and Commander-in-Chief of the Loyal Legion. No memorial which could be condensed within proper limits for such an occasion as this could do justice to the life, the genius, and the services of such a soldier as Sheridan. His career was at once one of the most picturesque and most striking of the illustrious heroes who were brought prominently into view by the events of the Great Civil War. The obscurity of his origin; the common-place of his earlier history; the lateness of his arrival upon the stage of active service in the War; the suddenness and rapidity of his rise; the remarkable brilliancy of his achievements; the completeness of his victories, and the important part which he bore in the closing acts of the Great Drama of War, mark him at once as a romantic character and a military genius.
