Coxetter, Louis Mitchell
Louis Mitchell Coxetter (kŏk´sətər), 1818–73, Confederate privateersman and blockade-runner, b. Nova Scotia. He settled in Charleston, S.C., and in the Civil War he captained the ship Jefferson Davis, which captured 10 prizes in 1861. When, because of the increasing effectiveness of the Union blockade, profiteering declined, Coxetter turned to blockade-running, at which he was equally successful.
