  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    The Battle of Mobile Bay.  The battle that secured the Union blockade in the Gulf of Mexico was marked by Farragut's decision to make a run through a minefield, then called "torpedoes," in order to bring his guns to a more effective position.  Many contemporary historians agree with members of Farragut's crew who insisted that he never quite uttered the famous phrase.
