“Story Behind the Name”
“Damn the Torpedoes” gets its namesake from the famous phrase uttered by Admiral David Farragut during the battle of Mobile Bay. While leading the Union Navy to cut off supply lines for the Confederate armies, one of his ships struck a torpedo (underwater mine) and deterred the rest of his ships. He gave the commanding order “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” inspiring his ships to press on and ensure victory in the Civil War. When you need a little extra boost to tackle your obstacles, be sure to brew a cup of Farragut’s courage.
