Ever Anderson was from Hadeland, Norway. He joined the WI 15th Infantry, Company F as a Private (Menig). The men of the company called themselves “KK’s Protectors” in honor of the 15th’s first Lieutenant Colonel, Kiler K. Jones. “F” was also known as the Valdres Company because a large number of its members hailed from the Valdres region of Norway. Anderson was wounded in the battle at Resaca, GA, on May 1864. He died in KY.
