Excerpt from Mit Ränzel Und Wanderstab: Eine Schülerwanderung Durch Den Nördlichen Schwarzwald
Emil F rommel was a native of South Germany. Born at Karlsruhe, the capital of the grand-duchy of Baden, on Janu my 5, 1828, as the son of the director of the ducal art-gallery of t... hat place, he received his preparatory instruction in the gymnasium of his native town. At the universities of Halle, Erlangen, and Heidelberg, he devoted himself to the study of divinity. In 1850, he was called as vicar to the village of Alt Lussheim near Schwetzingen (baden), whence four years later he went as vicar to Karlsruhe, his native town. In 1864, he accepted a call to Barmen, that great industrial center of West phalia, and five years later the position of military chaplain to the Berlin garrison. Hardly had he become familiar with his new surroundings, when, in July 1870, the F ranco-german war broke out. As a field-chaplain he followed the army into France, camping amidst his beloved blue soldier boys dur ing the siege of Strassburg (alsace), and preaching to them, after the surrender of that old stronghold, the first German sermon in St. Thomas' church. In June 1871, on the tri umphal return of the Berlin garrison, F rommel occupied again the pulpit of the Garm'sonkz'rc/ze and delivered, in the presence of Emperor Wilhelm I and the allied German sovereigns, that memorable sermon in commemoration of the heroic dead. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the Gamzlronkz'rclze, he was made chaplain to the Imperial Court.
