|I can find a May 16, 1861 date for his becoming a Colonel (see the second link Albert posted, ended up there through other sources), but I can't find anywhere his being a Lt. Colonel. I've found him as Captain Pender when searching through Confederate Generals (http://grapevine.com.au/~kwebb/cong_p.html) and the War of the Rebellion, and in the latter I find him mentioned as Colonel Pender in a letter from November 1861. The last mention of him as a Captain I found was a letter to Beauregard from the Inspector General dated April 1, 1861. It's quite possible he was a Lt. Colonel for a brief period. Just haven't found it yet.
