Abstract: George Mifflin Bache graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1861. He was the great-great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin. Bache served in the Navy until his retirement as a commander in 1875. During the Civil War, he commanded the gunboat Cincinnati at Vicksburg in 1863 and the gunboat Lexington during the Red River campaign in 1864. He was executive officer of the sloop-of-war Sacramento, which was lost in 1867 on the coast of India. The papers consist primarily of correspondence to Bache’s mother Eliza, the daughter of Commodore Daniel Todd Patterson (1786-1839), and other documents relating to Bache’s career.
