1897. Illustrated by R.F. Zogbaum and Carlton T. Chapman. From the Preface: In present this volume of Tales of 1812 it is not the intention of the author to give detailed accounts of actions at sea or to present biographical sketches of well-known heroes; he wishes but to tell something of the ships that fought the battles, whose names are inseparably connected with a glorious past, and to relate incidents connected with the Yankee sailors who composed their crews-A Yankee Ship and a Yankee Crew-thus runs the old song; it is to exploit both in a measure that is the intention of this book. Contents: Allen, of the Chesapeake; Reuben James, Able Seaman; The Men behind the Times; The Coward; The Scapegoat; The Loss of the Vixen; In the Harbor of Fayal; The Escape of Symington; The Narragansett; Fighting Stewart; Two Duels; Dartmoor; The Rival Life-Savers; and Random Adventures.
