Rank and Organization: Quartermaster, U.S. Navy. Born: 1826 Rochester,
N.Y. Accredited to: New York. G.O. No.: 32, 16 April 1864.
Served on board the U.S.S. Albatross during action against Fort De Russy in the Red
River Area on 4 May 1863. After the steering wheel and wheel ropes had been shot away by
rebel fire, Brown stood on the gun platform of the quarterdeck, exposing himself to a
close fire of musketry from the shore, and rendered invaluable assistance by his expert
management of the relieving tackles in extricating the vessel from a perilous position,
and thereby aided in the capture of Fort De Russy's heavyworks.
