HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PRIVATEERS. THE UNITED STATES AND THE WAR OF 1812 AT SEA

Details

An invaluable record of the early days of American sailing ships. Coggeshall the author of this work is both well known and highly regarded by those interested in chronicles of the great days of sail during the early nineteenth century. Coggeshall's two volume work of his voyages as a crewman and officer of American schooners and his experiences with the navy of the United States are vital reading and are published by Leonaur in hard and soft cover editions. This book concerns the American privateers-a subject the author knew well by close personal experience. Coggeshall commanded two letters-of-marque during the War of 1812-David Porter and Leo. In this history he has attempted to embrace the fortunes of every ship crew and commander and to describe the many battles at sea and the taking of 'prizes' that typified this engrossing conflict between the emergent American nation and the British.
