Robert Anderson

Robert Anderson was born near Louisville, Kentucky on June 14, 1805.

Robert grew up in a family that owned slaves, even though he later served time in the Union (against slavery).

Robert graduated from West Point in 1825.

Robert was the commander at the battle of Fort Sumter, he had to surrender with no choice he felt like a failure, but when he came back home the North thought of him as a hero.

Robert was known as a competent and trustworthy officer.

Robert's highest honor was Brigadier general, U.S. Army, breveted major general.

He made an impact by making smart efficient decisions and being looked up to by doing so.

I admire Robert because of his dignity and respect he earned by being very reliable and trustworthy.
