Joseph Reid Anderson (February 16, 1813 – September 7, 1892) was an American civil engineer, industrialist, politician and soldier. During the American Civil War, he served as a Confederate general, and his Tredegar Iron Company was a major source of munitions and ordnance for the Confederate States Army. When the Civil War began, he entered the Army as a brigadier general. Shortly after he was wounded and resigned from the Army returning to the iron works. It was the Confederacy's major source of cannons and munitions, employing some 900 workers. His plant was confiscated by the Union army at the end of the war, but returned to him in 1867 and he remained president until his death.

Anderson died while on a vacation at the Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire. He was buried in Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.  [jet] [ph:L]
