THE YOUNG MARINERS: A History of Maritime Salem

Salem was one of the great American seaports in the early nineteenth century, and this is its maritime history from its development during the colonial period to its decline after the War of 1812. Described here are the sailors, their ships, the ports they visited, the cargoes they carried, their influence on Salem, their performance under fire. Although interest in the book will be mainly regional, the information is well presented with colorful personal details.
