Carlisle (Co D) at the time in his diary which he later published in his accounts of the regiment in the WEEKLY ENTERPRISE (Enterprise, Chambers Co., Ala.) of April 10, 1902:
"...On Monday the command was ordered to strike tents and march to the war, preparatory to taking the boat (Selma) for Corinth, via Mobile. Just before leaving the landing at Montgomery, Co "I" was made to mourn the loss of one of its members, Arthur Gilmer, who {illegible} over-board {illegible} encumbered with heavy clothing, rations, he kept his head above the surface of the water but a few seconds, when he sank beneath the waves to rise no more. A large crowd of soldiers and citizens stood upon the bank in breathless silence and saw him go down so quickly that no aid could be tendered him. Col Dowdell wrote a short note to Judge Bibb, of Montgomery, who was a personal friend of W B S Gilmer, the adopted father of the unfortunate young man, informing him of the sad occurrence and requested him to look after the body of the departed soldier boy. The writer does not know that his body was ever recovered. Arthur Gilmer had just been mustered out of the service of the Confederacy, having served twelve months in the 7th Alabama Regiment. Was a member of Capt Jackson’s company, the first company that went out of Chambers county to Pensacola at the beginning of the war. Remaining at home but a few days, he went to Auburn and joined Co "I" 37th Alabama Regiment, and was a soldier for the war. The boat soon moved off from the shore, but not a huzzah came from the soldiers as she glided down the stream of the proud old Alabama, a thing very unusual when troops are going to the scene of action...";
The circumstances of his death were also recalled in the memoirs of S.L. Burney (Co G) circa 1916:
".... Very soon we were sent ... to Mobile by boat. Here we lost the first soldier of the regiment. I cannot now call his name. As we went aboard the boat walking near the edge there was a large hawser rope hanging from the upper deck. We suppose he thought this a stationary post for he leaned against it and overboard he went. The water was some 30 feet deep and running swiftly so that he was drawn under the boat and never rose at all. The boat soon left. His body was recovered and buried. I saw the grave not many years ago...";
