U for United States Navy

My 2020 Blogging from A to Z Challenge revisits my best posts from the 2014 to 2019 Challenges.

U for United States Navy (2015)

Although there were few victors, the War of 1812 saw a power-shift at sea, from the Royal Navy to the burgeoning US Navy. Although today, the Royal Navy remains a force not to ignore.

Gregory Wendell, the author of the diary in ‘Seeking A Knife’ in my Snowdon Shadows series, is an RN officer who encounters the USN on the Great Lakes.

How much do you know about the War of 1812? Do you envisage the US Navy as always as powerful as today? Have you seen any of the early ships?

    • In some ways, the sea as a transportation route is still major – for bulk goods that can’t be flown or aren’t pressing. When we moved to the US, our belongings were shipped and we crossed the Atlantic by liner with our two dogs. However, I’m an airship advocate, EC – some of them are bulk freight carriers.
