Re: University of Alabama, Class of 1861

The company letter designation given for the "Confederate Guards" should be "C", 11th Alabama Regt, not "E". Gov A B Moore accepted Capt Stephen F Hale's "Confederate Guards" for service in the Alabama Volunteer Corps on Apr 26, 1861. ADAH has the blue form used to authorize commissions of company officers. Paper used by Gov Moore for these commissions does not bear the usual E Pluribus Unum watermark frequently used for other AVC companies. On June 11, 1861, Hale was elected Lieut Col of the 11th Alabama Regt, and Sanders became Captain of the "Confederate Guards," the company entering Confederate service the same day.

Sanders was one of twenty graduates with titled degrees of the University of Alabama, Class of 1861 --
