Autographed CDV of Admrial Louis Goldsborough by Kindler of
Rhode Island.    Goldsborough was given command of the Atlantic
Blockading Squadron in September 1861, relieving Flag Officer Silas
Horton Stringham. In October of that year the Atlantic squadron was
split into the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron and South Atlantic
Blockading Squadron; Goldsborough took command of the North
squadron, and Flag Officer Samuel Francis DuPont assumed
command of the South squadron. During his command of the North
Atlantic Blockading Squadron, which he commanded from its inception
to September 1862, he led his fleet off North Carolina, where in
cooperation with troops under General Ambrose Burnside, he
captured Roanoke Island and destroyed a small Confederate fleet.  
After aiding the capture of Roanoke Island, Goldsborough and his
command were sent to Hampton Roads at the request of Major
General George B. McClellan to help protect Union forces landing on
the Virginia Peninsula at the start of the Peninsula Campaign.
Goldsborough refused to be placed under McClellan's direct
command, telling Assistant Secretary of the Navy Gustavus Vasa Fox
that he would instead cooperate with McClellan.  This move, coupled
with newspaper accounts critical of the Navy, so seriously hurt
Goldsborough that he requested that he be relieved. He was
promoted to Rear Admiral in August 1862, and in September passed
command of the squadron to Acting Rear Admiral Samuel Phillips Lee.
Goldsborough would finish the war performing administrative duties in
Washington, D.C."

"William Barker Cushing (4 November 1842 – 17 December 1874)
was an officer in the United States Navy, best known for sinking the
Confederate ironclad CSS Albemarle during a daring nighttime raid on
October 27, 1864, a feat for which he received the Thanks of
Congress.  He was expelled from the United States Naval Academy for
pranks and poor scholarship. At the outbreak of the American Civil
War, however, he pled his case to United States Secretary of the
Navy Gideon Welles himself, was reinstated and went on to acquire a
distinguished record, frequently volunteering for the most hazardous
missions. His heroism, good luck and coolness under fire were
legendary. Several biographers have referred to Cushing as
"Lincoln's commando" . He saw action during the Battle of Hampton
Roads and at Fort Fisher, among many others.  Cushing was
promoted to lieutenant in 1862, and to commander in 1872, although
many historians believe he deserved even greater honors. Both of his
brothers died in uniform, one (Alonzo Cushing) in the Battle of
Gettysburg in 1863, and another while fighting the Apaches in 1871.
