Secretary of the Navy, CSA.

Born in Trinidad and brought to Florida at a young age, Mallory was chosen by Jefferson Davis as the Secretary of the Navy because of his past experience in updating the US Navy even though Mallory was often criticized because he was not a secessionist and stated in 1861 that succession was simply another term for revolution, and that guerilla warfare amongst like-born peoples was rarely successful. His wife, the former Angela Moreno, belonged to an old noble Spanish family.

And together their home became a favorite meeting place of naval officers and those who did not enjoy the company of Mrs. Jefferson Davis (particularly Mrs. Mallory). Mallory was one of the leaders of the Confederacy who advised Davis on the surrender of The South. He surrendered without a struggle in 1865 and was imprisoned in New York State. A well educated man and naval genius, he lacked the speaking ability necessary to become a popular statesman. No published biography of him exists.
