John Salling
Birth: May 15, 1846
Death: Mar. 16, 1959

According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, John Salling was the last surviving Confederate Veteran of the U.S. Civil War. An article in the February 1991 issue of Blue & Gray magazine states he was an impostor. His authenticity is in question.
