Edward Anderson, CSA-- Part 2: Correct Birth Date

I came across Edward Anderson's obituary in the December 1915 Confederate Veteran Magazine of the United Confederate Veterans from which the Arlington National Cemetery was most likely taken.

It has Edward Anderson being born in St. Augustine, Florida, November 11, 1841.

This date would make his being a cadet at West Point at the outbreak of the war more accurate.
