George Barton on a Relative

"Our Lt. Col Chandler has won for himself the respect and love of the whole regiment by his cool and daring behavior in the various fights in which we have already been engaged he seems to bear a charmed life."
"He had treated his soldiers fairly, and he had been with them always in the thick of battle, never using his rank to seek safety. He was the type of officer the men admired, and they missed him greatly."
Quotes about Lt Colonel Charles L. Chandler from the letters of George Barton in the book, "Mother, May You Never See the Sights I have Seen" by Warren Wilkinson
