Three Wars Veteran. He began his military career in the 19th U.S. Infantry during the Civil War, was promoted to Captain Major for his distinguished service during the Phillipine Insurrection and rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in World War One. The frequent and detailed letters he wrote home during the Civil War have been preserved at the University of Rochester as a valuable historical collection. He was closely related to the University, being the nephew of its first President Martin Anderson, and a professor of Latin and Greek there between the Civil and Spanish American Wars.
