The Father of the Navy

After a ridiculous conversation with bushwoman (that's your blog name, and there's nothing you can do about), about Commodore Barry, I decided to do some investigation into who exactly he was. Turns out he was an Irish immigrant who was instrumental in the early U.S. Navy, and did many important things back in the day. When I was reading this, the Irish part in conjunction with the name Barry rung a bell, and I remembered from my walking tour of Logan Circle that there is a statue of him like 3 blocks from my apartment, in Franklin Square.
