From the Richmond Dispatch, 9/6/1861
Promotion. – Colonel Joseph R. Anderson, of this
city, has we learn, been appointed a Brigadier General in the army of the
Confederate States. Colonel Anderson has been assiduously engaged for months
past in preparing cannon and munitions of war for the use of our Government, but
is now to be transferred to a higher, though not more useful, sphere of action.
His many friends predict for him a successful career in the field of active
operations, to which he will proceed at an early day.
