"...Christopher McKee spent twenty years compiling data on the 2,900 officers who served in the U.S. Navy between its establishment in 1794 and the end of the War of 1812. From the vast holdings at the National Archives, including previously unused files of the accountant of the navy, and private letters, journals, and other papers located around the country, he sought information about their parents, their education, the reasons for their joining the navy, their fitness evaluations, and numerous other details of their careers. The result of this research, recorded here, provides a fascinatinghistorical narrative of the officers who formed America's fledgling navy a t the turn of the nineteenth century." -from the dj.
