         Acting 5th Lieutenant
       Irvine Stephens Bulloch

     C.S. Navy, C.S.S. Alabama

Bulloch, the brother of  Capt. James D. Bulloch, entered the C.S. Navy as a midshipman in 1861. He served on a number of vessels before joining the CSS Alabama, where he was the ship’s sailing master, in charge of its navigation. After that ship sank, he served on the CSS Shenandoah as master and watch officer. For much of time he was an “acting” lieutenant, only receiving his actual commission in 1865—perhaps the last man to be commissioned in the Confederate Navy. He lived in Liverpool, England, until his death in 1898.
