Henry C. Hodges

GEN. HENRY C. HODGES DEAD

Veteran of Civil War Who Saw
Early Service on the Frontier.

BUFALO, N.Y., Nov. 3 - Brig. Gen. Henry Clay Hodges, U.S.A., retired, died here today. He was 86 years old and was graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1851. His son, Major Gen. Henry C. Hodges, Jr., was summoned from Camp Beauregard, Louisiana, but was unable to reach Buffalo before his father's death. General Hodges was appointed to the Military Academy from Vermont and received rapid promotion until he was made Colonel in 1876. He retired Jan. 14, 1895.

General Hodges was a veteran of the civil war, though he had seen early service on the frontier, and in 1853 and 1854 in the Pacific explorations. He served first as a Quartermaster in the civil war, but became Chief Quartermaster of the Army of the Cumberland and was on the staff of Major Gen. Rosecrans in the Tennessee campaign.
