The illuminating introduction by Geoffrey M. Footner, apparently a relative of Hulbert Footner who died in 1944, contrasts the careers of mariner Barney who waged several naval campaigns out of Baltimore in 1775 as a teenager and his New York pacifist chronicler Hulbert. The story of this legend in his own time is intertwined with that of Presidents Jefferson and Madison and US naval history.
