It was the bloodiest land battle ever fought on American soil and the decisive clash of the Civil War—and it had a remarkable number of U.S. Navy connections.

Quite interesting. I knew about several of those stories, but there were a couple of new ones, at least to me. Good read.

At the beginning of the war there was a US Navy lieutenant on recruiting duty for the army, raising recruits in the Kentucky/WVa area if memory serves.

Another US Army officer should be added to the list, though he was merchant marine and not US Navy.

LtCol Freeman McGilvery had commanded his own ships before the war and at Gettysburg commanded one of the artillery brigades in the Artillery Reserve of the Army of the Potomac.

That was Bull Nelson, later a division commander in Buell's army, at Shiloh.
