Fort Sumter Union Flag

http://www.gettysburgflag.com/Historical_3.p    ~Farragut had a huge historical

 

 

and political impact because of the role he played in

 

the Civil War. Because of Farragut, a southerner who

 

decided to fight for the north, the south didn't stand a

 

chance of winning.

 

 

 

~On August 5, 1864, Farragut's fleet of ships attacked

 

Mobile Bay, the last Confederate stronghold in New

 

 Mexico.

Because of the Union victory at Mobile Bay, the Union

 

was able to capture the Tennessee, the Confederate's

 

Ironclad.

 

 

 

~In 1866, Farragut became the first person in United

 

States Naval History to be awarded with the rank of

 

Admiral.

 

 

 

~In 1868, Farragut was asked to run for president, but

 

declined, saying that a political life wasn't the life for

 

him.
