Yesterday I posted about coming across a photograph taken in the 1870s-1880s of a naval officer with the inscription "Sanders, Adm. B.T. U.S.N.. Active at Fort Fisher, N.C.." I am really interested in any and all things dealing with Fort Fisher so wanted to know more.
But I was unable to find any information on him. I went to the Civil War Talk site and asked if someone knew who this man was. I found out his real name was Benjamin F. Sands. Then, I found a photo of him which was the same one I had seen.
So the problem was that someone had given the wrong name.
