Dissimilar to the U.S. military files, the Confederate records had no official file framework after the war. On the other hand, for the vast majority of the cases researched, the periods of the petitioners alone were sufficient to demonstrate their case was false. Williams was for the most part recognized as the “last Confederate veteran” in 1950s daily papers. Then again, in September 1959 a report by The New York Timesrevealed that he was truth be told conceived in 1854 in Itawamba District, Mississippi, and not 1842 as asserted. Still, since Salling and the various inquirers were dead, Williams was commended as the last Confederate veteran after his passing on 20 December 1959.

Salling’s own particular status is questioned. In 1991, William Wonder inspected the cases of Salling and a few other “last Common War veterans” for a piece in the Common War history magazineBlue & Dark. Wonder discovered enumeration information that showed Salling was conceived in 1858, not 1846. Albeit in 1900 Salling supplied a birthdate of Walk 1858, he seems to have been conceived around 1856, still past the point where it is possible to have served in the Confederate Armed force. The 1860 statistics records him as 4 years of age, and the 1870 evaluation as 14.William Lundy is recorded as 1 year old on the 1860 enumeration, and from 1870 until 1930 he gave registration marshals ages that reflected birthdates as ahead of schedule as 1853 and as late as 1860. He didn’t push his birthdate back to the 1840s until he sought a Confederate annuity from the condition of Florida. In the same piece, Wonder affirmed Woolson’s case to be the last surviving Union veteran and stated that Woolson was the last honest to goodness Common War veteran on either side. Nonetheless, Wonder did not present examination setting up who, among the few other Confederate cases from the 1950s, some of which seem, by all accounts, to be certifiable, was the genuine last Confederate veteran.
