Abstract: The problem presented to the writer has been to determine the tactical contributions of Lieutenant General Richard Heron Anderson, to evaluate his military significance and to explain why an officer who attained the rank of next to the highest grade in the greatest army of the Confederacy, the Army of Northern Virginia, is an almost forgotten figure in the history of his country, his section and even his own state.
