Voyages the Age of Engines by Joshua M. Smith
This second of the two-volume Voyages covers the American maritime experience from the end of the Civil War through the War on Terror. Published in cooperation with the National Maritime Historical Society, the selections chosen for this anthology of primary texts and images focus on the age of engines on the Atlantic and Pacific, on the Gulf Coast and the Great Lakes, and on the high seas and inland rivers.
Each example is linked to the larger context of American history, including issues of gender, race, power, labor and the environment. Voyages, the Age of Engines: Documents in American Maritime History, Volume II, 1865-Present
