I think, sadly, that most folks today only know of the Battle of Mobile Bay as being the place where Farragut is supposed to have exclaimed "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!" At least that's what was being taught to kids when I was in elementary and high school, whether they even include the quote, much less where it was made, in the lessons on the war today I haven't the faintest clue.
