CSN naval captain raphael semmes bio

<— Prev    |    Next —>

This "psychographic" essay is from Confederate Portraits, (1914) by the noted biographer, Gamaliel Bradford (1863-1932). It must have been written in order to expose to the reading public that softer, more sensitive Raphael Semmes (1809-1877) that no historian ever seems to consider. This vision of the American Civil War pirate comes off as a quiet, pious Renaissance man, with a flare for the dramatic.

"Semmes was not only a wide reader in his profession and in lines connected with it, but he loved literature proper, read much poetry and quoted it aptly. He was a singularly sensitive to beauty in any form."
