Image is a three-quarter standing view of Anderson in the uniform of a 1st lieutenant. He wears a light-colored triple-breasted tailcoat with matching trousers. The coat bears 1st lieutenant’s shoulder straps with dark colored collar and cuffs. There are also parallel rows of dark braid across the chest and on the left breast he wears an identification badge which the photographer has tinted gold. At his waist is a sash and white buff sword belt with a two-piece tongue and wreath Virginia plate with sword attached. He also wears dark gloves. Resting on the chair beside him is a light-colored kepi with a dark band around the base and supporting a tall, full plume on the crown.
