    Notes 
    • United States Naval Ofifcer. He became a hero in the pre-War of 1812 Naval squabbles with France and Great Britain. He served with distinction in the Quasi-War with France, helped to defeat Tripolitan naval forces in the Barbary Wars and defeated a British Sloop-of-War in 1811, which brought back a measure of respect to the United States Navy in the wake of the USS Chesapeake-HMS Leopold affair. He commanded several squadrons crushed in the War of 1812, but helped to successfully defend Baltimore from British attack. After the War, he was named President of the United States Navy Board of Commissioners (which included fellow Commodores Isaac Hull and David D. Porter). (bio by: Russ Dodge)
