Book Synopsis
"The Seaman's Journals of Captain LEONARD SAMUEL GRANT (1812 - 1880)" are the official logs of Captain LEONARD SAMUEL GRANT (1812 - 1880), Pilot and Master of Steam Vessels, who served in the U.S. Coast Survey and then the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service along the coast of New England, predominately between Boston, Massachusetts and Eastport, Maine from 1860 until 1877. The first journal records two surveying cruises of the U.S. Coast Survey Schooner Benjamin Peirce in Penobscot Bay, Maine from September 4, 1860 until November 17, 1862. The second journal records the cruises of three U.S. Revenue Cutters from 1873 through 1877: (1) U.S.R.C. Hugh McCulloch (1873); (2) U.S.R.C. Levi Woodbury (1874); and, (3) U.S.R.C. Alexander J. Dallas (1874 - 1877) which were all based out of Portland, Maine at the time. In addition, Captain Grant's service as Pilot for the 1870 and 1871 pleasure cruises of the passenger steamer New Brunswick between Boston, Massachusetts and Nova Scotia is included.
