1867 1st ed American NAVY Officers Illustrated Farragut Civil War Ironsides Ship



“The first biography of David Farragut!” (Nevins)



Joel T. Headley, an American historical author, was known for his biographical works on important American military leaders, such as Grant and Sherman. His major contribution, of course, is his account of the Civil War, entitled ‘The Great Rebellion’; however, he extended his military focus beyond infantry and cavalry generals in his next work “Farragut and Our Naval Commanders”.



This work deals exclusively with all aspects of the American Navy from generals and commanders, their ships, the types of guns used on the vessels, the wars that the Navy played roles in, as well as details of some of the earliest naval ships – The Monitor, Galena, and Ironsides. The naval officer biographies include:

Admiral Farragut

S.H. Dahlgreen

L.M. Goldsborough

S.H. Stringham

C.H. Davis

W.D. Porter

C.S. Boggs

W.B. Cushing

S.F. Dupont

D.D. Porter

Hiram Paulding
