Admiral is the highest rank that can be achieved in the navy and in the U.S., the rank is equivalent to an army general. The U.S. Navy did not have the rank of admiral until 1862 with the appointment of nine rear admirals. Before that, the ranking officers were senior captains. In 1866, David Farragut became the first full admiral. This costume is ideal for Halloween and for pretend play. When wearing it, your child will look ready to command a fleet of ships. Shoes not included.
