post on wheels

And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,

And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

The Wyoming was his last command, and upon her, he saw his last sea service. On account of failing health, he was given shore duty and when he needed it, leave of absence. His last appointment to naval duty was as assistant to the executive and senior aid to the commandant at Washington Navy Yard.

Then came to him final rest and immortality…

He died December 17, 1874, only a few days before the ringing of the Christmas bells. He died not in ocean storm, nor amid the thunder and carnage of battle, but after the war had ended, and the peace for which he had fought so bravely had settled over a reunited country.
