Anderson in The Man With the Iron Heart[]

Anderson was the home of Diana McGraw and her family. In 1945, Diana's son Pat, a US Army soldier stationed in Germany, was killed in the uprising launched by the German Freedom Front. Diana, with the support of her husband Ed, began agitating for the pullout of American troops from Germany. Consequently, Anderson and the whole of Indiana grew in national prominence.
