BERNATH, Stuart L. Squall Across the Atlantic : American Civil War Prize Cases and Diplomacy. Berkeley and Los Angeles : University of California Press, 1970. Pp x,229. 8vo, blue cloth. "Shortly after President Lincoln proclaimed a blockade of the Southern ports, the British government warned its subjects against violating either British or international law in derogation of their duty as neutrals. However, as Lord Russell reported, Englishmen would, if money were to be made by it, send supplies even to hell at the riskof burning their sails. When Union ships set out to seize the blocackade-r unners, British merchantmen and American warships were sailing on a collision course, leaving a wake of vexatious diplomatic, legal, and political problems for their governments to settle. In this first comprehensive study ofthe Civil War prize cases, the author traces the events and their far-reac hing implications on both sides of the Atlantic. He explains how the court cases offered a crucial test of the Lincoln administration's power to wage war and how the decisions affected presidential emergency powers. He pointsout significant disagreements within the administration and shows the comp lex relationship between national self-interest and international maritime law as Britain and the United States exchanged their traditional roles of belligerent and neutral.

Myron Smith, American Navy 1789-1860 : Bibliography 573; Fredriksen, Free Trade and Sailors’ Rights : A Bibliography of the War of 1812 E107.

"Here for the first time is the exciting, dramatic story of the naval engagements fought on Lake Champlain and Lake George. Many of the most significant battles of the whole period between the first landings by Europeans on the North American continent and the conclusion of the War of 1812 some two centurie s later took place on these two lakes. Situated on the most important north-south gateway in North America — with the St. Lawrence River to the north and the Hudson River to the south — the two lakes were a natural focal point for the forces attempting to control the eastern seaboard from New York north. First France and England, later England and the new United States, threw their best soldiers and sailors into the desperate struggles for the region." - from the dj flap.
