Excerpt from The Story of Admiral Farragut: For Young Readers
On July 5, 1801, in a rude cabin in Eastern Tennessee, David Glasgow Farragut was born.
It was a wild and lonely place. For miles around the little farm, nothing could be seen but woods. Few sounds could b... e heard save the sing ing of birds and sometimes the cries of wild beasts.
There was already one child in the family, a boy, whose name was William.
George Farragut, the father, was a brave man. He was a Spaniard, and had come to America during the Revolutionary War.
