Colonel Burkhardt retired voluntarily on Sept 9, 1920. He died Dec 29, 1929 in New York City and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. There is an interesting news article about Burkhardt dated Oct 27, 1907 in the Baltimore sun under New York Topics concerning an incident where he was arrested in New York City in front of the Hotel Breslin while on leave.

Burkhardt, suspecting he was being swindled and a fight resulted. The Court discharged Burkhardt and Burkhardt was seeking the other man, named P. W. Wald.
