Owen Prentice: The Army Way

Owen Prentice: The Army Way
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 2009 and Revised 26 Nov 2009

We found the following new item published in the 20 Jan 1899 issue of The New York Times pertaining to an event that happened some 35 years earlier during the Civil War:

    "A bill to grant an honorable discharge for Owen Prentice, lieutenant of the Eighty-sixth New York Volunteers, who was dismissed from the army in the time of the civil war for playing cards with enlisted men, when called up in the House to-day, drew from Mr. Bailey (Dem., Texas,) some caustic comment on the army regulations which made it a crime for officers to play cards with enlisted men and a pastime with brother officers. The bill was passed."
