From Confederate Veteran, Volume 25, Issue 10, October 1917:
ADJUTANT OF THE FIFTEENTH GEORGIA REGIMENT
Gen George P Harrison, Commander in Chief UCV, has paid a deserved compliment to Camp No 171 UCV, of the District of Columbia, by the appointment of Adjutant Lovick Pierce upon his staff as Assistant Inspector General, with the rank of Colonel. This comrade enlisted in the 15th Georgia Regiment in July 1861 and was subsequently made the adjutant of that splendid fighting regiment, which was engaged in almost every important battle fought by the Army of Northern Virginia. It was in the Yorktown Campaign, the battle of Williamsburg, Seven Days Fighting around Richmond, second battle of Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and the almost continuous fighting down to the surrender at Appomattox. Adjutant Pierce was seriously wounded at Gettysburg, in the Wilderness, and again at Fort Harrison, but always as soon as sufficiently recovered he rejoined his command. His unflinching courage, his intelligence, and his devotion to and constant care of the men so endeared him to them that their love is yet manifested whenever he meets one of them.
Colonel Pierce is a prominent officer of the Mount Vernon Place Methodist Church, South, in Washington City. His grandfather Rev Lovick Pierce was an itinerant Methodist preacher for more than seventy years and contributed largely to building up the splendid civilization of the State of Georgia. His father George Foster Pierce was made bishop of that Church in 1854 and so served until his death in 1884.
Colonel Pierce is now serving his third term as Adjutant of Camp 171 UCV and is one of the strong and faithful workers in that Camp.
