Dorastus B. Logan
Birth: 1822
Morris County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Jul. 2, 1863
Gettysburg
Adams County

Civil War Union Army Officer. Served in the Civil War as Captain and commander of Company H, 11th New Jersey Infantry. On the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, command of the regiment fell to him when superior officers Colonel Robert McAllister and Major Philip Kearny were wounded, and senior Captain Luther Martin was killed. Captain Logan had just been informed that he was now in command of the 11th New Jersey when he was shot and killed. His remains were first buried on the battlefield, then were taken home by his family. A cenotaph exists for him in the First Presbyterian Churchyard, Morristown, New Jersey. (bio by: Russ Dodge)

Thank you, Captain Logan, for your sacrifice on the field of battle. The Battle of Gettysburg, where you fell, changed the course of the War. Your sacrifice and that of your wife and young daughters made a difference. Thank you again for your service....(Read more)
