After a short stay in Washington, D.C. he again travelled west to Minnesota. His letters to the Boston Post during his travels were later published in Minnesota and Dacotah in 1857. Andrews entered the Civil War as a private and moved up the ranks until, in 1864 he became a brigadier-general. After the war, he published History of the Campaign of Mobile (1867).

He spent the next eight years in Stockholm and on his return in 1877 he published Life and Manners in Sweden and Norway. In 1882, President Arthur appointed him consul-general of Brazil.
