Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Born in Ireland, he was awarded the CMOH for his bravery and service on board the warships "USS Crusader" and "USS Keokuk" while serving as a Quartermaster in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Carrying out his duties skillfully while on board the U.S.S. Crusader, Q.M. Anderson, on all occasions, set forth the greatest intrepidity and devotion. During the attack on Charleston, while serving on board the U.S.S. Keokuk, Q.M. Anderson was stationed at the wheel when shot penetrated the house and, with the scattering of the iron, used his own body as a shield for his commanding officer."
