ANDREW FOOTE: Civil War Admiral on Western Waters
An ardent social reformer, schooled in the tradition of the old Navy, Foote considered himself first and foremost a staunch Christian and agent of Divine Will, and during his command of the brig Perry, in the African squadron, he also became a leading advocate of the government's use of forceful measures to end the slave trade.
