Goddard.—Died; in San Francisco, California, April 4, 1892, Calvin Goddard, late Lieutenant-
Colonel, and Assistant Adjutant-General Army of the Cumberland, aged 54 years, 1 month, 25 days.
Calvin Goddard was born at Norwich, Connecticut, February 9, 1838. He was the son of James B.
Goddard, and the grandson of Calvin Goddard, one of the leading judges of that state, and for whom
he was named. He was fitted for college at sixteen years of age, but circumstances led him to adopt a
business career, and he became an accountant in a large commission house in Cleveland, Ohio.
Later he occupied a similar position in the Merchants' Loan and Trust Bank of Chicago, and was in
that city when the war broke out.
He entered the service as first lieutenant of the 12th Ohio Infantry on the 9th of January, 1862, having
before that time acted as aide to the governor of Ohio, in fitting out the troops. His regiment was
stationed in West Virginia. Here he attracted the attention of General Rosecrans, and when that officer
was transferred to the West, Lieutenant Goddard accompanied him as acting assistant adjutant-
general. At the battles of luka and Corinth, he acted as aide to the general, and was mentioned for
gallantry and efficiency.
When General Rosecrans was assigned to the command of the Army of the Cumberland, Lieutenant
Goddard was promoted to the rank of major aud aide-de-camp, and as such served on the staff of the
commanding-general during the Stone's River campaign. On the reorganization of the staff,
consequent on the death of Colonel Garesche, Major Goddard was promoted to be assistant adjutant
general, with the rank of lieutenant-colonel, and for some time was chief of staff of the Army of the
In his service as staff officer, Colonel Goddard showed the traits of an experienced and capable
business man, as well as the gallantry and efficiency of a soldier. He was always industrious,
systematic, painstaking, clearheaded, and indefatigable. His letters were models of neatness and
conciseness, and every filing about his desk was orderly and methodical. He did, every day, the work
of that day. He was never in arrears, so that his department was at all times ready for any move the
general might direct. To the junior officers with whom he was associated, he was always genial,
courteous, and kind, and to the clerks and orderlies about headquarters he was considerate and
patient. It would be difficult to find a more harmonious or more industrious military family than that
grouped about Colonel Goddard's desk at Murfreesboro, Tenn.
When General Garfield was appointed chief of staff, Colonel Goddard continued in the discharge of
his duties as senior adjutant general with the same energy as before. He accompanied the general
commanding through the Tullahoma and Chickamauga campaigns, being always ready to carry out
any direction, and quick to transmit any order dictated by the general. When General Thomas
succeeded to the command of the Army of the Cumberland, Colonel Goddard continued to fill all the
duties of adjutant-general until after the battle of Missionary Ridge. When that was ended, on the 27th
of November, 1863, he resigned and returned to civil life. His military service had been long, faithful,
and creditable, aud his health was impaired by his unremitting devotion to duty. He left behind him a
pleasant memory among all who had served or come in contact with him during those eventful days.
