Born in Charles County, Maryland, Raphael Semmes (1809 – 1877) served as an officer in both the United States Navy and the Confederate States Navy. During the Civil War, he was captain of the CSS Alabama, garnering him high praise and a promotion to Rear Admiral and Brigadier General — simultaneously.
Semmes commanded the Alabama from 1862 – 1864, taking it across the globe. On June 19, 1864, the ship was overtaken off the shores Cherbourg, France by the USS Kearsarge. Commanded by Captain John Ancrum Winslow, the Kearsarge proved victorious and Admiral Semmes was forced to surrender as the Alabama fell to the bottom of the sea.
