Acting Ensign W. L. Titcomb

While Rear Admiral D. G. Farragut was commanding the West Gulf Blockading Squadron, on April 21, 1864, Lieutenant Commander E. W. Henry reported capturing the English schooner Laura from Havana attempting to run the blockade. The Laura was sent to New Orleans for adjudication, under the charge of Acting Ensign W. L. Titcomb.... from Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies in the War of Rebellion.
