Commanders Column


As we moved from July into August, America once again missed the chance to celebrate the man who is probably my favorite Civil War General on what would have been his 194th birthday. I know that no Civil War General is really celebrated any more but to me this one really should be.

What he accomplished or established during the war few can match and I don't believe any can surpass.

He introduced the use of map coordinates into battle planning.
Remote fire concept of artillery fire through signaling.
Use of combined forces, dismounted cavalry, repeating rifles to the infantry.
Had folding portable pontoons developed.
Most developed telegraphy service of any army on either side.
Wide-ranging secret service spy network.
Most efficient hospital service where the use of chloroform was standard.
Established a mobile railroad hospital system.
Established the first National military cemetery at a battlefield.
Hired the first female doctor in the army.
Established the most efficient mess service for his soldiers with full time cooks.
Prepared his men for battle through "real life" sorties in small units rather than with parade ground drill.

  “We are all cowards in the presence of immediate death. We can overcome that fear in war through familiarity.”
Dealt with the problem of “absenteeism” by setting a good example rather than with executions. He didn’t take a day of leave during the entire Civil War.
On the move he and his staff, whenever possible, rode at the side of the road and left the road to the troops.

Of this man President Lincoln said; "It is doubtful whether his heroism and skill exhibited last Sunday afternoon has ever been surpassed in the world."

And yes he was a Virginian.

I give you

Major General George H. Thomas ~ 7/31/1816-3/28/1870
The Rock of Chickamauga
Commander, Army of the Cumberland,
United States Union Army.

Happy birthday General Thomas. We could have used more generals like you. .

DID YOU KNOW??

~

There were seventy-seven Confederate and forty-seven Union generals killed or mortally wounded in action during the war. That is 18% of Confederate and 8% of Union generals.

~

Major Robert Anderson might have been the first officer who destroyed military equipment to keep it from falling into enemy hands. Before leaving Fort Moultrie for Fort Sumter he had every gun spiked and then destroyed the gun carriages.

Department Orders No. 2

Series 2010-2011

15 August 2010

1. On behalf of the Department I offer the thanks of all of the brothers of this Department to the thirteen Michigan men who took the time and went to the expense of representing us at the National Encampment in Kansas City this month.

2. I commend the brothers of this Department on their recruiting efforts over the past year. Those efforts have resulted in our winning the Augustus P. Davis - Conrad Linder Award. That is an award given by the National Organization each year to the Department that had the most new members. The plaque accompanying the award will be proudly displayed at our Department Encampment next May.

3. Camps need to start thinking about when they will do officer installations for next year. The Department is already getting requests from Camps to reserve time on my schedule to do installations. As many requests as can be honored, will be honored, but there are 23 of you, only one of me, and a limited period in which to get this done. Times will be given away on a first come first served basis, so get your request in as soon as you are able. If a conflict exists such that I am unable to perform this service for your Camp, I will consult with you and may send another Department Officer. As in past years, any Camp requesting a special officer from the Department, other than the Commander, to do the installation for them, will be accommodated if possible. Such requests still need to be made through the Department Commander however.

4. Each Camp Commander is directed to review the web site for his camp. If it is up to date as regards officers, their contact information, Camp meeting times and places, and any factual information about the Camp that you should choose to include, you need do nothing more. If any of those areas are in need of correction, make the corrections. If you require assistance in this regard, we have volunteers who can help bring your web sites up to date. Please report the status of your Camp's web site, either up to date or in need of assistance, to me no later than October 1, 2010.

5. The Department will be participating in the Detroit Veterans Day Parade. Please save the date of Saturday November 6, 2010 for this event. This is a Department level event in which we expect to not only honor the Michigan men who have served this country in the armed forces, but to provide the opportunity for brothers from around the state to get together and visit with one another. We will also have the use of the barracks at Historic Fort Wayne to allow any brother who chooses to do so, to overnight at the Fort, and practice drill before going out to do the parade. More information will follow by special communication with each Camp.

6. Remembrance Weekend in Gettysburg is coming up. It will be November 19-21, 2010. The Department always mounts a presence for this event. The event includes the opportunity to honor the fallen at the Gettysburg National Cemetery, the soldiers from this state at one of the several regimental monuments on the battlefield, the chance to march in the largest Civil War parade in the world, to enjoy camaraderie with several of your Michigan brothers, and the opportunity to tour this field upon which a pivotal battle of the war was fought. If you wish to go but are concerned about transportation, the Department will assist in setting up carpools and providing such other advice or coordinating assistance as we may be able to give in allowing you to make this trip. Contact me should you want any such assistance. My e-mail is p31713@aol.com. Please use the words, "Gettysburg - 2010," on the subject line to help me identify what you are writing about.

Greetings to all,

At the suggestion of Commander Shaw, I have registered Camp 427 to march in the Detroit Veteran's Day Parade on Saturday, November 6. The parade will start at Noon, "rain or shine" and the route at this time is from Temple to Hart Plaza on Woodward (about 20 blocks). Other details will be forthcoming as I get your response.

I would like to invite all who can attend to do so (i.e. Camps and re-enactors are welcome, along with your flags and banners).

This could turn into one of the big reoccurring Department Sesquicentennial events in Southeastern Michigan during the next 5 years.

Our turnout is important, and will show the rest of the area what we do!

Let me know asap if you can participate.

Rick Danes, Commander
Sgt. John S. Cosbey Camp 427

Brothers:

A clarification on the Veteran’s Day Parade.

Please pass this along for distribution to the Brothers in your Camps.

We are already registered as the Department of Michigan. Keith Harrison did that on June 8th for the entire Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War - Michigan Department as an unit in the parade.

Our goal now is to make our Sons unit the best one in the parade by turning out as many brothers and Camp Flags as possible.

You do not have to send in separate registrations for the parade.

If you have already registered as an individual Camp, Keith suggests, to avoid any confusion, that you might want to contact the parade organizers (address below) and let them know that you are a part of this earlier registration. The SUVCW - Michigan Department is already on their website as an entry.

The parade contact person is:

Charlotte Tripp
Secretary / Parade Logistics Assistant
Metropolitan Detroit Veterans Coalition, Inc.
(248) 910-1539
www.metrodetvetcoalition.t35.com
metrodetvetcoalition@yahoo.com

We are also arranging for those who need to drive in early, the ability to stay at historic Fort Wayne the night before and caravan from there on the day of the parade as parking may be problematic.

It is already intended that the SUVCW - SVR unit will comprise our color guard followed by the Department flag and all Camp flags followed by members of the Order.

There also is a good chance that there will be as a separate unit just before our SUVCW-Department unit a Civil War Reenactment Group.

If you desire more information about the parade or Fort Wayne, our contact person is Keith Harrison at: pcinc@prodigy.net

Yours in F.C. & L.

General Orders No. 1
SERIES 2010-2011

16 August 2010

I am humbled, honored and appreciative to all Brothers that attended the 129th National Encampment in my native and beloved state of Kansas and who placed their confidence in me to lead them as Commander-in-Chief during 2010-2011. I accept this responsibility and pledge to all to diligently discharge the duties of the office and to the best of my ability, serve the Order with honor and dignity.

I wish to thank the Department of Kansas for hosting the 129th National Encampment. Commander Knopke, his committee and the Brothers in Kansas did an outstanding job. I thank all Brothers that attended and hope you had a great time.

To my fellow California Brothers who have supported me for many years and thought that it was time for a Californian to again be Commander-in-Chief, I say Huzzah. It has been 44 years since Brother Frank Woerner was Commander-in-Chief. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my mentor, confident and dear departed friend Brother Bob Lowe. Without his many hours of discussions I would not have been prepared for the job of Commander-in-Chief.

I would like to congratulate the newly elected National Presidents of the Allied Orders. I pledge the support of the Brothers of the SUVCW to the Woman’s Relief Corps, Auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic (WRC), The Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic (LGAR), Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War, 1861-1865 (DUVCW), and the Auxiliary to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (ASUVCW). Together we can continue to perpetuate the memory of the Boys in Blue.

The National Administrative Headquarters of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is established at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Please submit via your Department Sr. Vice Commander. Camp and Department photos and short stories of perhaps two paragraphs are always welcome. Articles should answer the questions: who, what, when, where, why and how? Department Sr. Vice Commanders should check the stories they receive from Camps for completeness and accuracy.

In addition to the Camp and the Department, the death of a Brother should be reported to National Chaplain, Jerome W. Kowalski, 206 E. Grantley, Elmhurst, IL 60126, paptom@msn.com.

Camp and Department websites need to be current and accessible to all. In many cases our websites are the first contact we have with new members. All websites should be updated by September 1, 2010.

Our theme for my administration will be simple: Learn who we are, Learn what we do, Participate in what we do, Honor the Boys in Blue. LLPH

Brothers are reminded to support the tax-deductible funds of our Order. Contributions to our Departments and Camps are also fully tax deductible.

We are in difficult financial times and part of our Brotherhood is looking after each other and our families. Let us not forget that Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty are what make this a great Order.
