I feel confident that the folks in North Carolina have their act together when it comes to General Pender's service in North Carolina regiments. However, its also clear to me that I can't vouch for the accuracy of everything in the article that I linked to.
General William Pender - Confederate Hero
For example, it seems unlikely to me that there were any Apache Indians in Washington Territory in 1859. As for the Battle of Spokane Plains, it seems that it took place in September of 1858, involving Spokans, Yakimas, and a few renegade Nez Perce.

As for the date November 28, 1859- I'm unaware of any significant event in American History that took place on that day (Besides the death of Washington Irving).
This is just another reminder (If anyone needed one) that you can't take everything you read online as gospel.
