Rev War Navy Crush-Captain Gustavus Conyngham

Hope everyone's having a great summer....just thought I'd throw in another one of my crushes, Rev War naval men of the blue
( who could board MY ship anytime).

Captain Gustavus Conyngham, an Irish-born privateer/Continental Navy officer in the Rev War( he's not gorgeous by any means, but there is something about his expression that grabs me...besides I'm all about the Irish lads! ) Capt Conyngham was in incredibly brave man, having survived captivity at least twice. Plus, according to letters and contemporary accounts, he was a totally loving husband!
