Admiral David Dixon Porter Wins!

The last several months, the Civil War Navy Sesquicentennial Blog has been running a Who Was the Greatest Naval Officer During the Civil War contest with weekly voting.

Both Union and Confederate officers were included and this was done in a playoff style.

In order to win, Porter had to defeat the following officers in direct competition:

John Worden
David G. Farragut (a big surprise here)
William Goldsborough
John Dahlgren
William Cushing (in the Union championship_

And finally Confederate Raphael Semmes for the championship.

Hey, he was at Fort Fisher which always gets my vote, but I have to admit I vote for his last two opponents.

Congratulations David D.!! --Old B-Runner
