Admiral William Henry Emory - Original Sepia Portrait Photograph with Inscription

Born in 1846 to a prominent US Army officer, William Henry Emory II seemed destined for a military career.  He entered the United States Naval Academy in 1862, and proceeded to serve in the US Navy for 56 years, advancing to the rank of Rear Admiral in 1906.  During his career he served all over the world.  He commanded ships in the rescue of the Greely Arctic Expedition in 1884 and during the Spanish American War. He also served as Naval Attache to England for 4 years.  His last command was the 2nd Division of the North Atlantic fleet during its world cruise.  The "Great White Fleet", as it was popularly known, was ordered by President Theodore Roosevelt to circumnavigate the globe from 1907 to 1909 in order to show the world that the United States was now a naval power. This splendid portrait of this remarkable man includes an inscription on the bottom in the admiral's hand.
