Andrews was an American architect and a Confederate artillery commander and diplomat during the American Civil War. Served as a Lieutenant Colonel of Artillery in the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Fought in a number of battles including the Seven Days Battle, where he was wounded. He is known best for his part in the Battle of Cedar Mountain (near Culpeper), Virginia on August 9th 1862. There, near the front, a Federal shell struck his right side, ripping a gaping hole in his abdomen, nearly disemboweling him. After a miraculous recovery, but now having to wear a silver plate over his wound, he rejoined his unit. He was again wounded on the way to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. At war's end, he returned to Baltimore where he lived peacefully with his wife, Mary Catherine for three more decades until his death at age 73. His father was Union Brevet Brigadier General Timothy P. Andrews. (bio by: Find A Grave)
