Best Civil War Naval Commander Voting

I went to the http:civilwarnavy150.blogspot.com site today.

Voting continues into the semi-final round and is set up in brackets.

There are seven days left to vote if you're interested.

UNION NAVY:

D. D. Porter-- 83%
William Cushing-- 17% (I voted for him.)

Both of these men were at Fort Fisher. Dixon commanded the fleet during both attacks. Cushing was in the naval attacking column and went on various expeditions in the area.

CONFEDERATE NAVY:

Raphael Semmes-- 75% (Probably because of his mustache.)
Matthew Maury-- 25% (I voted for him.)

Kind of a Neat Idea to get Folks Stirred Up for the 150th. --Old B-R'er
