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.
Memorial Hall Error
Illness is not a criteria for inclusion in Memorial Hall. Also, his first name is spelled "Dulaney."
