"During the War of 1812 the U.S. Navy came of age. In fleet actions on the lakes and single ship engagements at sea, American men of war defeated Royal Navy ships of similar force. Naval officers such as Isaac Hull, Stephen Decatur, Oliver H. Perry, David Porter and Thomas Macdonough became heroes, and their ships, Constitution, United States, Niagara, Essex, and Saratoga, symbols for an American public proud of its navy. The three volumes will again call to mind the famous naval actions and events of our second war of independence with Great Britain"--Introd.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

"The documents were selected from a wide variety of sources to create an overall picture of the war effort, including British and American plans and reports, personal letters, ships' logs, and newspaper items. The documents are arranged chronologically by topic or theater of operations. Explanatory texts introduce and provide context for individual documents, or groups of documents, combining them into a coherent and interesting historical account of the war"--Introd.

Contents: v. 1. 1812 -- v. 2. 1813 -- v. 3. 1814-1815.
