Admiral John Paul Addams was a relative of The Addams Family.
It was seven bells on that fateful night in the North Atlantic. A fierce sou'wester was howling through the rigging as Admiral John Paul Addams drove his stout little frigate straight into the heart of the German flotilla. Foaming up his stern at flank speed was Admiral Tojo and the Imperial fleet. It was then Admiral Addams fired that shot heard round the world, after uttering those inspired words "If you need me, I'll be in my cabin."
They hanged him two hundred years ago.
