13TH MISSISSIPPI INFANTRY REGIMENT

Sanders, aka Josiah P. Saunders, was one of the oldest living veterans of the 13th Regiment, dying in 1927 at the age of 96. Buried in the Beauvoir Confederate Cemetery, one of six 13th veterans buried there. McLean lists him as a member of first the Wayne Rifles and subsequently of the Lauderdale Zouaves, but Howell has him only as one of the Wayne Rifles. Which is also the story at Find-A-Grave by his great grandson Jeff Grenier. McLean lists Pvt Joseph Smith Waldrop, of the Spartan Band, as the longest living veteran, dying in 1936 at age 92.
