Muster Rolls, Company B, Fifth Texas Infantry, Microfilm edition in Archives of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, Columbus. Though Auerbach was the only man killed in battle after Gettysburg, a private named W. L. Burton was shot by a sharpshooter at New Market Hill, Virginia on August 18, 1864. Since his death occurred outside battle, he has been numbered with the fifteen who died of disease or other causes. Neither Andrew Legg nor William Ryan has been counted among the company's casualties.
