Description - Commodore Robert F. Stockton, an American Naval Hero by Samuel Bayard
Commodore Robert F. Stockton, An American Naval Hero, describes the life of one of America's little know naval officers who helped shape this country from the War of 1812 to his death as a United States Senator in 1866. The Commodore was the grandson of Judge Richard Stockton from New Jersey, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The Commodore joined the Navy at the age of 16, fighting in the War of 1812 earning the nickname 'Fighting Bob' and ended his 40 year naval career by conquering California during the War with Mexico. This book is a reprint of a book written by the Commodore in 1856, so there is no distortion of events, in other words the historical truth.
