The Anderson Boys are a faction featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.
The Anderson Boys were founded sometime before 1899, by Anders Anderson. According to the newspapers, they soon instigated a reign of terror in Scarlett Meadows. One of the more notorious crimes they committed was the capturing of three wealthy individuals, whom they ransomed back for a sum two thousand dollars each. Two of those they ransomed back were horribly mutilated. Unfortunately for them, the Sheriff of Rhodes as well as his deputy eventually tracked them down shortly before the Van der Linde gang arrived at Clemens Point.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
Hosea, Dutch, and Arthur encounter the gang being trucked back to Rhodes. As they beg the sheriff to release their friend Trelawny, Anders unlocks the door and him and his men spring out. They climb onto a nearby train, and Arthur and Archibald pursue them. After one dies when he hits his head on a bar, Arthur leaps aboard the train and moves forward, knocking them out one at a time. He at last comes face-to-face with Anders, who pulls out a knife and tries to attack Arthur but, despite this, Arthur manages to knock him unconscious. The train then stops, and the gang is put back into the prison wagon. The gang is then transported to Rhodes jail.
