The adopted son of War of 1812 hero Commodore David Porter, David G. Farragut rose to lead Union naval forces during the Civil War. Best known for his capture of New Orleans and triumph at Mobile Bay, Farragut's operations played a key role in achieving victory on the waves and aiding Union troops ashore. Join Historian Ken Hickman as he traces Farragut's rise from humble origins to one of the luminaries of the Union military.
