Pair of carte de visites of Major Robert Anderson (1805-1871) was a United States Army officer during the American Civil War. To many, he was a hero who defied the Confederacy and upheld Union honor in the first battle of the American Civil War at Fort Sumter in April 1861. The Confederates bombarded the fort and forced its surrender to start the war. After Sumter fell, Anderson was promoted to brigadier general and given command of Union forces in Kentucky, but was removed late in 1861 and reassigned to Rhode Island, before retiring from military service in 1863. Includes: c. 1865 seated view of Major Anderson by Gurney & Son of New York. Fine condition...plus Seated view of Anderson probably taken shortly after the surrender of Sumter. No backmark.
