Flowers left for James Lee
This week marks the 147th ANNIVERSARY of the your intrepid contributions to the victory of your ship, the USS Kearsarge over the Confederate commerce raider, the CSS Alabama off the coast of Cherbourg, France. You truly showed "courage under fire" during that decisive sea battle waged in defense of the Union. We salute you and honor your actions, service and sacrifices that made you a more than worthy recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
