Lost With His Entire Command On Egmont Key

Ensign Isaac S. Bradbury, a sailor from Machias, Maine, spent a significant portion of the Civil War on blockade duty off the coast of North Carolina aboard the gunboat Cambridge. He survived the war and continued on in the navy. But his career was short lived: On January 4, 1866, while in command of the armed tug Narcissus, he and his entire company of 32 men were lost when the ship wrecked on Egmont Key, Fla.

His image is new to my collection, and is now available on PinterestTumblr, and Flickr:
