Biography | show moreshow less
John A. Dahlgren (1809-1870) was on ordnance duty in Washington from 1847-1863, reorganizing and equipping Washington's Navy Ordnance Yard. In 1851, Dahlgren devised a new 11-inch muzzle loading cannon known as the Dahlgren gun. In July 1863, Rear Admiral Dahlgren became Commander of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron and in 1864, aided in the capture of Savannah. John Dahlgren's brother, Charles Dahlgren, was a Confederate General. His son, Col. Ulric Dahlgren, was killed in 1864 during an abortive raid on Richmond, the purpose of which is still hotly debated by historians. John Dahlgren devoted much time in his later years to refuting the claim that the intended purpose of this raid was to assassinate Jefferson Davis. When he signed this photo, Dahlgren was Commander of the South Pacific Squadron (1867-1869), although he returned to the Ordnance Yard before his death.
