American Privateers in the War of 1812: The Vessels and Their Prizes as Recorded in Niles’ Weekly Register by Timothy S. Good and The Atlantic Transport Line, 1881–1931: A History with Details on All Ships by Jonathan Kinghorn were covered in a recent issue of the Nautical Research Journal.

Reviewer William Henry Flayheart III said The Atlantic Transport Line is “a monumental work” with an “amazing amount of detail.”  He concludes by saying  that “Jonathan Kinghorn has provided his readers with one of the most interesting histories of an American-flag steamship line which anyone has ever written.  it belongs in every maritime library.”

 

 

 

Of American Privateers in the War of 1812, reviewer Daniel J. Bera says it “shed[s] light on an aspect of the War of 1812 that has not received attention equal to its contribution during the war…does a commendable job of getting all the information out to the reader in a format they can use…an excellent reference…should be a welcome addition to the library of many historians.”
