The post had arranged for a large dance on the night of February 15, 1898. Charles Summerall was on the hop committee. Then the country was electrified by the news that the battleship Maine had been blown up in Havana Harbor. When war was declared, General Graham was promoted to major general. He invited Charles to become his aide-de-camp. Charles was very busy with him at San Antonio and in Atlanta, Georgia, putting the defenses of the Gulf and the South Atlantic in some state of efficiency. On April 21, 1898, his mother died. General Graham was assigned to the command of the Second Army Corps at Camp Alger, Virginia, and took command on May 19, 1898. General Graham found one regiment in camp with men dying of typhoid fever. Later, Charles became the aide of General A. C. M. Pennington.
