Daniel Freemon was far more courageous than even he knew. Few would have guessed it when he was the young and rebellious spawn of a once-great actor. But for all its horrors, The War gave many of us a chance to rewrite our futures. Both Daniel and his father took their chances and drove them all the way to the end of the line. His father reinvented Dixie into one of the primary military powers of the United States. Daniel reinvented himself into a man of profound courage in the face of the enemy who would have destroyed us all. And I would still say that about him even if he had not died saving hundreds of American sailors. They saved thousands more as The War went on, and went home to have their own families, all of whom owe their very existence to a man named Daniel Freemon.
