Early life

Dallas was born on May 15, 1791 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His father, also named Alexander James Dallas, was the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury under James Madison.[1] His brother, George M. Dallas was Vice President of the U.S. under James K. Polk.


Dallas entered the Navy as a Midshipman in November 1805. He served in the War of 1812, the Second Barbary War, and in the suppression of piracy with the West Indies Squadron. Dallas also established and commanded the Pensacola Navy Yard from 1832 to 1843, and served in the Second Seminole War.

Personal life, death and legacy

In 1821, Dallas married Henrietta Constantia Meade, daughter of merchant Richard W. Meade and the sister of American Civil War general George Meade; she died in Pensacola, Florida in 1831.[2]

Dallas died on June 3, 1844 in Callao, Peru.[1] Fort Dallas in Florida and the U.S. Naval destroyer USS Dallas are named after him.
