Overview

History of the Navy of the United States of America from 1815 to 1860 was originally published in 1866 from manuscripts of J. Fenimore Cooper, and other authentic sources.

The Navy of the United States presents a very different aspect, in 1860, from that which it offered in 1815. Its existence has been trebled as to time and its force increased fifty fold. As respects the navies of this hemisphere, it is supreme; the united marines of all the rest of this continent being unable to contend against it, for an hour.

Meet the Author

The creator of two genres that became staples of American literature — the sea romance and the frontier adventure — James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) was born in New Jersey, raised in the wilderness of New York, and spent five years at sea before embarking on his successful writing career. Among Cooper’s many novels, his best-known books are the five "Leatherstocking" tales — including The Deerslayer and The Last of the Mohicans — each featuring the fictional hero Natty Bumppo.
