Second issue, with the four-page letter to the author from McHenry Howard added at the end. Richard Snowden Andrews (1830-1903) was an antebellum architect and later a Confederate artillery commander and diplomat in the Civil War. He saw action in the Seven Days Battles, where he was wounded; he was next wounded, almost fatally, at the Battle of Cedar Mountain in August of 1862. He was wounded yet again at the Second Battle of Winchester, and subsequently took a position as envoy to Germany. At the end of the Civil War, he moved to Mexico and served in Maximillian's army, returning home to Maryland after the emperor's execution.
