Summary, etc.:
Recently discovered primary source material sheds new light on Farragut's life and times. The first full admiral in American naval history, he was small in stature and almost sixty years old at the outbreak of the Civil War. Yet Farragut possessed enormous courage and stamina. He led by example and became an inspiration to the entire nation. Thoroughly researched and compellingly written, Lincoln's Admiral examines Farragut's command of the most daring and important.
Assignment of the Civil War: the mission to recapture the vital Southern port of New Orleans. With meticulous detail, Duffy deftly retraces the steps that led up to that critical campaign.
Subject: Farragut, David Glasgow, 1801-1870.
