Farragut Arrives in New York to Great Fanfare

DECEMBER 13TH, 1864:  Rear Admiral Farragut arrived in New York on board his battle-scarred flagship, USS Hartford.

A New York newspaper hailed his return in verse:

To Farragut all glory!
The Sea-King's worthy peer,
Columbia's greatest seaman, Without reproach or fear.

--Old B-Runner
