Admiral David D. Porter, The Naval History of the Civil War., Chapter 4: death of Ellsworth.--capture of Alexandria, Va.--Potomac flotilla. (search)
hich, unimportant as it was compared with others at the time, so fired the Northern heart that it added thousands of soldiers to our armies. In this case Alexandria was evacuated by the Confederates upon demand of a naval officer--Commander S. C. Rowan--commanding the Pawnee, carrying a battery of fifteen guns, and when Ellsworth's troops were landed the American flag was hoisted on the Custom House and other prominent places by the officer in charge of a landing party of sailors--Lieutenant R.

I have to congratulate myself on being so ably assisted by my executive officer, Lieutenant R. B. Lowry. He was everywhere, inspiring both officers and crew with his own zeal and gallantry in the performance of their duty. Lieutenant James O'Kane, who had charge of the 1st division, was severely wounded soon after we commenced the action; but not until he had himself primed, sighted and fired two guns, and from loss of blood fallen to the deck, would he consent to be carried below. Lieutenant James Forney, commanding the marines, had two guns assigned him, and, with his men, fought
