Acknowledgments
 

I am indebted to the scholars who researched and wrote the many books I used for reference; to the people at the Essex Institute in Salem, Massachusetts; to the people at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site; to my editor, Karen Grove of Harcourt Brace & Company, for giving me a contract for this book without a word on paper during a time of my life when such faith in me mattered so much; and to my son, Ron, for the use of his library on American and military history, as well as for leading me to my interest in American history in the first place. Gratitude also goes to my agent, Joanna Cole, for her encouragement; to my family for their forbearance; and most especially to my husband, Ron, who accompanied me on research trips and listened to my problems.
