Letcher Light Artillery of Virginia

Wounded in action at the battle of Fredericksburg, Va. in 1862

Major General and Commander of the Virginia Division of the U.C.V.

With imprint of Anderson & Co. Richmond, Va.


A resident of Henrico County, Brander was commissioned into the Letcher Light Artillery of Virginia, on February 17, 1862. He was wounded in action at the battle of Fredericksburg, Va., on December 13, 1862. Served as Commander of the Virginia Division of the U.C.V., with rank of major general. Buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Va.

Wet plate, albumen carte de visite photograph, mounted to 2 1/2 x 4 1/8 card. Bust view in Confederate uniform with rank of major. Imprint on the front mount, Anderson & Co., Richmond, Va. Backmark: Anderson & Co., 1311 Main St., Richmond, Va.

In the official account from U.C.V. Headquarters, New Orleans, La., January 29, 1900, General Moorman states of General Brander:

A noble old Virginian, Major General Thomas A. Brander, commanding the Virginia Division of the United Confederate Veterans, has been gathered into the harvest of death. The great soul of this brave old soldier, patriotic citizen, and good man passed into the land of beauty, where he will again enjoy the companionship and enlist under the banner of glory which waves over Lee and Jackson, and Stuart and Heth, and Early and Pickett, and others of his immortal comrades who have preceded him into eternity. The General Commanding joins with the Confederate survivors of the Old Dominion who mourn for the loss of the noble old Confederate soldier whom they so often honored as their beloved Division Commander. Brave, modest, gentle, and chivalrous, his life work is ended, his name is inscribed upon the Roll of Honor, and his story is eloquently told in the annals of his State and of the Confederacy.

The following tribute is by his personal staff:

Richmond, Va., January 29, 1900.

Among those who today mourn the death of General Thomas A. Brander, late Commander of the Virginia Division of the United Confederate Veterans, perhaps none will do so more sincerely, or feel his loss more keenly, than we, the members of his personal staff. All of us were his old comrades, his lifelong friends and companions, and thus linked to him by ties which could be broken only by the rude hand of death. Deeply impressed with our sorrows, we cannot allow this occasion to pass without conveying to his family this imperfect testimonial of our appreciation of our chief, our comrade, and our friend, as well as of the loss sustained by us in his death. The old saying, "The bravest are the tenderest," was rarely more perfectly exemplified than in the life and character of our dead friend.

At the outbreak of the late civil war he entered the ranks of the Confederate army, and on almost every field on which the Army of Northern Virginia was engaged he bore a noble part. He returned from the war a major of artillery in Peagram's Battalion, a body conspicuous for gallantry even in that splendid army, and among all that host of patriot "braves" there was none accounted braver or truer than he whose loss we mourn today. We cannot here recount either the stirring and stormy scenes of war which shaped his military life, or those through which he passed as a citizen, so often checkered by experiences both of sunshine and of sorrow; but suffice it to say thar throughout his eventful life he bore himself as only the brave, true man and Christian gentleman that he was could have done, and the epitaph of one of England's bravest and best soldiers might well be his; "He feared man less because he feared God more." As the ranking officer of the United Confederate Veterans in this department, he was at the head of all the movements and of all the processions formed and led to do honor to the Confederate cause, and to the memory of those who died for that cause, and we cheerfully bear testimony to the fidelity and ability with which he performed every duty imposed by these often recurring and sometimes mournful events in our city.

In short, no man loved the Confederate cause or did more, as far as was able, to attest that love, both during and since the war, than he; therefore, be it

Resolved: 1). That in the death of General Thomas A. Brander the survivors of the Confederate armies have lost a comrade as conspicuous for fidelity to duty and bravery in war as he was for fidelity to principle and manly bearing in times of peace; that our city has lost one of its best citizens, one who exemplified in all the walks of life that nobility of character which marks the true man and Christian gentleman; and that we, the members of his personal staff, feel with peculiar poignancy the grief now universal in our midst occasioned by his death.

2). That we hereby tender to his family our deepest sympathies, together with the assurance that in the sorrow which death has brought to the household of our comrade, friend, and chief we, and each of us, share a common grief, akin to that only of those who were "nearest and dearest" to him in life.

Signed: George L. Christian, George J. Rogers, James H. Capers, Joseph V. Bidgood, J. Taylor Ellyson, William M. Evans, Joseph Bryan.
