Lunch and Learn: Samuel Francis Du Pont and the Civil War U.S. Navy

Samuel Francis Du Pont is the most famous Civil War hero you’ve probably never heard of. Or at least that much about. But his peers considered him one of the best officers in the Navy when the Civil War started. Samuel Francis Du Pont scored the first major Union victory and went on to a distinguished yet turbulent career during the war. Come hear Hagley Historian Lucas R. Clawson discuss Du Pont and his Civil War service.

Presented by Lucas Clawson. This presentation is part of a joint series offered by the library and Delaware Tech, Jack F. Owens Campus.
