Irvine Stephens Bulloch-- Part 4

After the war, he was denied amnesty and remained in Liverpool working as a cotton merchant with his half brother, James Bulloch.

In 1869, his sister Mittie and the Roosevelt family toured Europe and a joyous reunion took place.  Teddy Roosevelt, future president, was with his mother Mittie who had filled him with stories of the sea and his uncles.  He later wrote "The Naval War in 1812."

Irvine Bulloch's sword is at the Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool.  He lived the rest of his life in England, dying at age 58 and is buried at Toxteth Park cemetery in Liverpool.
