"No one ever drew around him a circle of more devoted friends than had Col. Gibbons. Amiable in his nature, modest, and unassuming in his manners, firm in his attachments; disinterested in his friendship, unselfish in all the impulses of his heart. . . As a patriot . . . surpassed by none . . . As an officer and soldier, few were more competent . . . But to all those noble and elevating qualities which we have mentioned, he added the higher and more noble character of the Christian."
