|Thanks Joe, I apparently did a poor job of posting a website on my answer. Farragut is a real interest of mine. He is such an ineresting character. A friend even bought me a CDV of Farragut as a gift this past year. You would have thought he bought me a piece of jewelry I was so excited.
Side bar. I bought a book for kids on the Civil War at the Nixon Library last week. I buy books to donate to various library when I find them at a good price. Since it had a article on the Battle of Mobile Bay I read it before I planned to send it to my sister in law's library. Well I am sure everyone would be amazed to know that Buchannan died in the Battle. Makes me wonder how he became president of Maryland State Agricultural College after the war.
