ALBER, LOUIS
(1825~1899)
Louis Alber, Confederate veteran, was born in Germany in 1825. After immigrating to the United States, it appears that Mr. Alber settled in Tennessee. On June 7, 1861, he enlisted in Company I of the 15th Tennessee Infantry and was made a 1st Sergeant and was later elected Orderly Sergeant. During the War, the 15th Infantry took part in the Battle of Belmont on November 7, 1861, and the Battle of Shiloh on April 6 - 7, 1862. On July 22, 1862, Alber was discharged because he was considered exempt under the Confederate Conscription Laws. At 37 years of age, according to the laws first passed on April 16, 1862, he was too old. All enrolled servicemen had to be between the ages of 18 and 35. After the War, Alber, a widower and a Lutheran, moved to Texas and settled in San Antonio, where he worked as a laborer. On June 28, 1896, complaining of rheumatism, he moved into the Confederate Men's Home in Austin. After living in the Home for nearly three years, Alber died on February 22, 1899. He was buried in the Texas State Cemetery.
