Daniel Ammen was born in Brown County, Ohio, on 15 May 1820. He was appointed a midshipman on 7 July 1836 and later served with distinction during the Civil War. Ammen commanded Seneca at the Battle of Port Royal, S.C., on 7 November 1861; Patapsco in the attack on Fort McAlister and Fort Sumter in 1863; and Mohican in the bombardment of Fort Fisher in late 1864 and early 1865. Following the end of the fighting, he spent most of his remaining years of service in Washington, serving first as Chief of the Bureau of yards and Docks and then as Chief of the Bureau of Navigation. He was promoted to rear admiral upon his retirement in 1878. After leaving active duty, he spent much of his time writing on naval subjects and published two books: the Atlantic Coast and The Old Navy and The New. Ammen died near Washington, D.C., on 11 July 1898, and was buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
