An early revisionist account of the career of one of the United States' earliest, and the author contends most distinguished, naval officers. "During the American Revolution, the Saratoga played a significant role in stemming the flow of supplies to British forces. Sailing out of Delaware River ports on her three cruises, she engaged heavily armed British vessels in spectacularly successful encounters, capturing 12 prizes. In 1781, during a West Indian storm, she disappeared with all hands." Vg in sunned, rubbed, nicked dj. 70.00

Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge, 1993, 
CLARK, William Bell. George Washington's Navy, Being an Account of His Excellency's Fleet in New England Waters. Baton Rouge : Louisiana State University Press, (1960). First Edition. Pp (4),v-xi,(1),1-275,(1) + portrait frontispiece + one leaf of plates. Map, illustrations in text. 8vo, blue cloth,gilt lettering to spine. "No phase of early American history has been more maltreated than the period during which Washington's active little navy fl ourished in New England waters. Biographers and historians have missed entirely,many of the events which augmented the success, or, at times, the ill-success, of his Excellency's naval effort. Here, at last, is the true story—historically correct but as exciting as a fanciful sea yarn - of what the the great Commander-in-Chief accomplished on the high seas during the earlyyears of the American Revolution. The American squadron, never numbering m ore than six miniature war vessels, was established in the fall of 1775 to harass the supply lines of the British in Boston. Despite many adversities,the little fleet accomplished a large part of its mission and proudly brou ght in fifty-five enemy vessels containing everything from turnips to gunpowder. Appreciating the importance of confronting the British by sea as wellas by land, Washington clung to the control of his naval force for months after the scene of the military campaign had changed to New York. When he was forced to give it up, it continued to function despite the dishonest administration of avaricious Continental agents. The wrangles between these agents overprizes and prize money involved Washington even during the trying period when the Howes were driving the Continental Army from Long Island toWhite Plains. Of these quarrels nothing has been told until now. Such omis sions as this, along with inaccuracies and false traditions, have plagued historians' accounts of the navy from the very beginning. Washington's navy preceded the creation of the Continental navy by more than a month, and might well be considered the tiny spark which ignited the ultimate flame of American sea power. Mr. Clark's action-filled story traces the history of this aggressive little navy from its inception to its final expedition. Early American historians and enthusiasts, and everyone who enjoys a thrilling sea tale, will be interested in this book." (from the dj). Contents : Prelude1775. 1.

Thomas Cochrane, 10th Earl of Dundonald (1775-1860), was a British politician and naval adventurer, considered one of the most daring sea captains during the Napoleonic Wars. Although Captain Cochrane is considered one of Britain's finest sea fighters, his name is not well known, even by his own countrymen. His life and exploits served as inspiration for the naval fiction of 20th century writers C. S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian.

"Captain Cochrane went to sea in the Royal Navy's greatest period. He became one of the finest sea fighters Britain has ever known. His scientific ingenuity and imaginative genius made him a pioneer of combat methods which were only fully developed nearly one hundred and fifty years later in the second world war. By his skill and daring he did more than any one individual to bring independence to three great countries, which, together, are larger than the whole United States.

Yet todav his name is almost unknown even in the British Isles. For every ten thousand Britons who have heard of Davy Crockett - a minor American frontiersman during one of the less creditable periods in United States history - perhaps one has heard ot Captain Lord Cochrane, tenth Earl of Dundonald." - from the dj.

Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA and London, 2005, ISBN:0674017226 
COSKI, John M. The Confederate Battle Flag : America's Most Embattled Emblem. Cambridge, Massachusetts and London, England : The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2005. First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xi,(4),[2]-401, +32 p. of black and white photos and reproductions. 8vo, black cloth spine, red paper covered boards, red lettering to spine. "In recent years, the Co nfederate flag has become as much a news item as a Civil War relic. Intensepublic debates have erupted over Confederate flags flying atop state capit ols, being incorporated into state flags, waving from dormitory windows, oradorning the T-shirts and jeans of public school children. To some, this p iece of cloth is a symbol of white supremacy and enduring racial injustice;to others, it represents a rich Southern heritage and an essential link to a glorious past. Polarizing Americans, these 'flag wars' reveal the profou nd -- and still unhealed -- schisms that have plagued the country since theCivil War. 'The Confederate Battle Flag' is the first comprehensive histo ry of this contested symbol. Transcending conventional partisanship, John Coski reveals the flag's origins as one of many banners unfurled on the battlefields of the Civil War. He shows how it emerged as the preeminent representation of the Confederacy and was transformed into a cultural icon from Reconstruction on, becoming an aggressively racist symbol only after World War II and during the Civil Rights movement. We gain unique insight into thefine line between the flag's use as a historical emblem and as an invocati on of the Confederate nation and all it stood for. Pursuing the flag's conflicting meanings, Coski suggests how this provocative artifact, which has been viewed with pride, fear, anger, nostalgia, and disgust, might ultimately provide Americans with the common ground of a shared and complex history." - from the dustjacket. Contents: Part I: Confederate Flag: 1. "Emblem of a Separate and Independent Nation"; 2. "The War-Torn Cross"; 3. "Unfurl theOld Flag"; 4. "A Harmless and Rather Amusing Gesture".
