Second Assistant Engineer
United States Navy


There is a discrepancy between the year of death as 1890 and the following news article dated 1912. The original news article can be viewed through the Washington Post Archive section on their website. The Interment Control Card states his date of death as June 21, 1890 with the notation that original burial was in Allegheny Cemetery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the phrase, "C.R. Nov. 1912" in the Remarks Section, which most likely stands for Cemetery Removal. The Washington Post article treats the reinterment as a recent death.

Funeral of Merrimac Survivor
Funeral services for the late Loudon Campbell, who died early in the week at his home in Loudoun County, Virginia were held at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday morning. The body was met at the Union Station by Ashton Ramsay, E.V. White and H.H. Marmaduke, surviving officers of the Confederate ironclad Merrimac. At the grave a prayer was read and a squad of Cavalrymen from Fort Myer fired a volley over the grave and a trumpeter sounded taps. The deceased was serving as a Second Assistant Engineer in the United States Navy at the outbreak of the Civil War. He resigned and became the first Assistant Engineer in the Confederate Navy, serving on the Merrimac and other vessels.
