Personal

John C Dickinson, son of Captain Crispin Dickinson, born in 1859 is so true and lawful in devotion to his father’s memory and services and that of the Ringgold Battery, that survivors of the Company, adopt him as “Son of the Battery” and wish his name to go down in history as our worthy of so eminent honor.
