Admiral's Son General's Daughter: is a continuation of the story begun in Admirals and Generals. This second book describes in vivid detail what may have occurred in the United States Military under the Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland, Harison, McKinley and Roosevelt Presidential administrations. The narration is by the son of a career naval officer, born in Beaufort, South Carolina. He will also serve in the Army Navy Building and the White House, Washington D.C. The historical events of 1877 through 1913 are carefully followed. The imagination of the author provides rich characters in powerful settings from the harbors of Alaska to the ports of the Balkan countries just prior to World War I. The time old love story between a man and a woman is woven throughout the book when the naval officer, marries the daughter of a general. They have four children, the oldest girl becomes a college professor, the oldest son enters the US Naval Academy, like his father and grandfather.

Ellis and published in 1895 by Western Book Syndicate and copyrighted by the Woolfall Company have provided background materials, maps of the period and needed information on how the federal government was organized and functioned during this period of history.
