Isaac Trimble (American National Biography)

Scholarship
[Isaac] Trimble was one of the oldest combat officers of the Civil War. Despite his age, he had a distinguished record, noted for personal bravery, combativeness, and skill. A southerner by birth, he never questioned the rightness of the Confederate cause and devoted himself to it. He was perhaps Maryland's finest soldier in the conflict.
