About this Item

First Edition. Pages 1 p.8vo. Removed. First Edition. Appleton's Cyclop¾dia of American Biography. Farragut (1801Ð70) was one of our most distinguished Naval Officers, famous, of course, for his attack at New Orleans and capture of the city in April, 1862, a move which destroyed the Confederate fleet and opened the Mississippi to free Union passage. Farragut, a respected officer throughout his long Naval career beginning at age 9, and in command of a prize ship as Midshipman at age 12, became the first Admiral of the U.S. Navy. Throughout the Nullification crisis of 1833, Farragut was in South Carolina as the highly effective Executive Officer on the "Natchez," which was then sent to Brazil. In Rio in1834, Farragut, in command of the schooner "Boxer,' saw it through a complete rebuilding and refitting there. This document refers to Farragut's request for extra pay in reimbursement of expenses when in Rio. The Committee on Naval Affairs rejected his claim since he had received both offficial orders and his regular pay as a Naval Lieutenant. They saw no reason to pay him extra when on official duty.
