Charles Williamson Flusser
Birth: Sep. 27, 1832
Death: Apr. 19, 1864

Civil War Union Naval Officer. An 1854 graduate of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, he was a warship commander in the Union Navy during the Civil War, rising to Lieutenant Commander. He was in command of the gunboat steamer "USS Commodore Perry" during the Union combined Army-Navy operations in North Carolina in 1862, and was in command of the "USS Miami" when it engaged the Confederate ironclad "CSS Albemarle" in April 1864. After personally firing the "Miami's" cannon at the rebel ship, the projectile bounced off the armored hull, returned to the deck of the "Miami", where it exploded, killed Lieutenant Commander Flusser. Three United States Navy destroyers (DD-20, DD-289, DD-368), have been named in honor of him. (bio by: PL)
