John Armstrong concludes his deeply appreciative Life of Montgomery with the following glowing eulogy: "In this brief story of a short and useful life, we find all the elements which enter into the composition of a great man and distinguished sol- dier; 'a happy physical organization, combining strength and ac- tivity, and enabling its possessor to encounter laborious days and sleepless nights, hunger and thirst, all changes of weather, and every variation of climate.'
