Bottom of mount is labeled, “BRIG. GEN. ROBERT ANDERSON. ENTERED ACCORDING TO ACT OF CONGRESS IN THE YEAR 1862, BY M.B. BRADY IN THE CLERK’S OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE US FOR THE SO. DISTRICT OF NEW YORK”.

Robert Anderson (June 14, 1805 – October 26, 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.

Image is clear and the contrast is good. Surface has some light dirt from age. Image has yellowed with time.
