Uriah Phillips Levy
Birth: Apr. 22, 1792
Philadelphia
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 22, 1862

United States Naval Officer. Rising to Commodore, he was court martialed six times during his lengthy naval career, believed to result from anti-semitism. He is credited with having purchased and restored Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and with his efforts to abolish flogging as punishment in the United States Navy.
