Whipple, "kind, charitable and self-sacrificing, was the good Samaritan of the Fourth Kentucky Regiment, the well-beloved and most excellent physician. Physically, he was a rather small man, with, however, a sturdy, well-knit frame, capable of much endurance. His pleasing, sympathetic manner made the men instinctively turn to him, not only when they were sick, but also when depressed in mind, by reason of hime-sickness, the loss of a comrade or the receiving of sad news from the far-away Kentucky home. He was approachable at all times, and ever ready to minister to either the body or mind diseased.... There were other physicians...but they were not endowed with that sympathetic magnetism which characterized Doctor Whipple." --Written by fellow trooper George D. Mosgrove in his memori, Kentucky Cavaliers in Dixie
