e-Books for Civil War Sesquicentennial

Post by Ann » 07 Sep 2011, 14:31

Maritime Heritage Minnesota has two e-book available at Kindle. The first is An Excellent Iron Boat: The Curlew in Antebellum North Carolina and the Civil War 1856-1862, priced at $4.99. The book is fully illustrated with contemporary and modern images and chronicles the life of the sidewheel steamer Curlew prior to the Civil War, her time preparing for the defense of Roanoke Island and Croatan Sound, her sinking during the Battle of Roanoke Island, and her archaeology. You can find the book at Amazon Kindle - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LE97IQ

If you don't use a Kindle, the free Kindle app - available for downloading to the right at the purchasing page above - works on Mac, PC, iPads, smart phones, etc. Simply choose the correct app for your device and operating system.

Remember to also check out North Carolina Schooners 1815-1911: A History of Shipping, Civil War Confiscations, Archaeological Sites, and the S. R. Fowle and Son Company of Washington, NC, priced at $4.99. This book proves the dominance of the North Carolina schooner's dominance as the vessel of choice for merchants and mariners throughout the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Enrollments and Registries for the 8 ports of North Carolina - Elizabeth City, Edenton, Plymouth, Washington, Ocracoke, New Bern, Beaufort, and Wilmington - have been studied completely and the results are presented here. Also, original shipping ledgers from the firm of S. R. Fowle and Son Company of Washington have been completely studied and the results presented here. Also chronicled are the confiscations of North Carolina schooners - by both sides - as prizes of war, to be used as working vessels, and to be used as sunken obstructions, and several schooner archaeological sites are investigated. Dozens of manuscript sources have been utlized to present a comprehensive picture of schooner use in 19th Century North Carolina - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005HYDPGK

Our goal is to sell enough downloads to support us while we do our underwater archaeology projects when grant funds dry up. Thanks!
