Thanks to Richard Haggard of
GOLETA, SANTA BARBARA,
California for this link to the
History of the
Destroyer during World War
(Captain Haggard commanded the American
armed ship "Louisa," which successfully engaged French and Spanish
privateers 20 August 1800 off Tarifa, during the Quasi-War with France.
Louisa fought off boarders and escaped, although damaged severely in the
rigging. Captain Haggard was wounded in the engagement.)
Approximately 150 years later the United States Navy named this
Destroyer after Captain Haggard.
