FOREWORD TO REVISED EDITION
This publication is a revision of the list of officers of the Con-
federate States Navy, 1861-1865, published in 1898 by this office.
The 1898 edition was prepared from the United States and Con-
federate navy registers, reports of officers, records of the office of
the Secretary of the Navy, and miscellaneous papers. It was real-
ized at that time that the list of names and the information avail-
able were very incomplete, and every effort has been made since
its publication to collect additional data.
In publishing the 1898 edition, attention was called to its in-
completeness, and request made that any errors or omissions which
might be noticed be brought to the attention of the Superintendent
of the Office of Naval Records and Library with a view to making
necessary corrections. As a result, approximately 400 additional
names have since been added and much data concerning the service
records of Confederate naval officers incorporated from records not
previously available for research.
As data concerning Confederate naval officers is scattered and
meager, this office will appreciate any authentic information leading
to additional correction of errors or omissions which may have
