Confederates in Memorial Hall

This alumni is included on this site because he is listed in Memorial Hall. We do not feel this is appropriate—these men took up arms against the same constitution they'd once sworn to support and defend—and once initial research is completed on all names we will engage with the Naval Academy and the Naval Academy Alumni Association to correct these and other errors.


Class of 1863

Daniel is one of 14 members of the Class of 1863 in Memorial Hall.
