    Captain George Hall Moffett
    From a post on Facebook by Kent Maynard: “Thanks to William Moffett III, here is a photo of a portrait of Capt. George Hall Moffett (1829 - 1875), my great-great grandfather. One of his sons, also called George Hall Moffett (1867 - 1950), was a lawyer and the City Counsel of Charleston, SC. Another son, Adm. William Adger Moffett, was my great grandfather, and a winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor. I am so proud of them, and so humbled by their example. So many men and women have given so much, so unstintingly, to make our country what it is today: Not perfect, but always aspiring to be better, always aspiring to be more just, more inclusive. My mother had this hanging on the wall of her bedroom: "La vraie charité ouvre les bras et ferme les yeux." We have come a long way -- and have a long, long way to go -- to form a more perfect and just union for all men and women of good will. But we will arrive at the promised land. Spero meliora!”
