In the spirit of the upcoming election season, there is a new poll posted on this blog: Who was the greatest Union Naval Officer during the Civil War?
David G. Farragut
David D. Porter
The poll is located on the left panel of the blog. Vote for your favorite! This will be part 1 of a 4 part series on Civil War leaders. In the upcoming weeks, we will also highlight your vote on the greatest Confederate Naval Officer.
After both Union and Confederate leaders are announced, we will hold a contest for the best 500 word essay on why each officer exemplifies the characteristics of a leader. Winners will receive a special prize courtesy of the CWN 150 as well as their response posted on the blog.
Stay posted in the upcoming weeks, and vote!
