At sea with the United States Navy

John Batten joined the United States Navy in 1864 and was appointed as an Assistant Surgeon and posted to the steamer, USS Princeton. He was later transferred to the USS Valley City where he experienced most of his service principally patrolling the North Carolina coastline. Batten underwent many hardships and riveting experiences including torpedoing, artillery duels and sniper attacks by Confederate sharpshooters before a final transfer to the monitors Oneota and Catawba and wars end. An interesting first hand account by a Civil war naval officer and a first rate source work for those interested in the history of the period. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket.
