Character description

Robert Anderson commanded Fort Sumter at the beginning of the American Civil War. He is often referred to as a Major because that was his rank at the time, but he later rose to the rank of brevet Major General.

The 19th century Scotland Yard official of the same name is listed on Librarything as Sir Robert Anderson.
