Murder on the Abarenda
The initial focus of this volume concerns the heinous murder that took place on board the United States collier Abarenda in 1908. It soon comes to light, however, that the brutal death of the ship’s second in command was but one of a series of terrible tragedies that befell the Weichert family. In their day, each of those incidences quickly became sensationalized stories in newspapers across the country. With the passage of time, those events slipped into obscurity — until now. Chapters include: Robert and Viola Weichert, with accounts of their wedding and children; Walter Robert Weichert’s Sea Service, touching on Abarenda’s First Officer, with testimonies of Third Officer Harry M. Bostwick and Seaman William Easton of the U.S.A.S. Abarenda and the official report of Walter Weichert’s death; The District Court of Porto Rico [Puerto Rico]; Carpenter Dickson’s Trial, with a chronology, statement to the petit jury by Judge Bernard S. Rodey, verdict and cause for an additional trial; Master Worley’s Trial with complaints by three seamen; Irons; Weichert in the Spanish American War; Widow’s Pension; The Weichert Family without Walter; Chief Officer Walter Robert Weichert’s Final Rest; More Tragedies in the Life of Viola Weichert; and, A History of the U.S.S. Abarenda. An index to full-names, places and subjects completes this well-written work.
Navy Daze: Coming of Age in the 1960s Aboard a Navy Destroyer.
This is the first-hand account of a young man from a small California town, who enlists in the Naval Reserve only to find himself on a “tin can” in the South China Sea in wartime. His desire to enjoy the hospitality of foreign ports gets him into trouble more than once. Michael R. Halldorson

Where Liberty Dwells, There Is My Country: American Civil War Letters, Photographs and News Reports
The American Civil War developed from a conflagration of ideologies, state rights, secession and slavery. The letters contained in this volume are the words of the average citizen voicing courage and anguish during this time. Many missives are between a sutler from upstate New York and his loved ones in Candor, and others from friends on the front lines. These echoes from the past are vibrant with life, hardship and death; on farms desperate for workers, and villages struggling to meet draft quotas. In 1861 through 1865 the music of war could be heard resonating across the continent, to encourage recruits, boost morale and keep cadence on marches. Songs of patriotism, faith and love illustrating the beliefs of both North and South, are a recurring theme in this volume. Part One contains chapters: The Cadence of War; The Much Maligned Sutler & His Goods; The Sutler from Candor; Oaths of Loyalty and Allegiance; Women of the American Civil War and the Sanitary Commission; Contrabands; Defenses (Rails, Cannons, and Telegraph); Arsenal and Hospitals at Washington, D.C.; Of Presidents and Generals, of Cabbages and Kings. Personal letters to and from the sutler from Candor, William C. Gridley, and his friend and future wife, F. A. Keeler, are interspersed throughout the chapters of Part One. Part Two (Letters from Family & Friends) contains the following chapters: Documents, Photos, Relevant News Articles (Personal Letters Interspersed); Drugs (Such as They Were); War Steeds; Civil War Draft and Dodgers; Fashionable or Not; Specie Concerns; President Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865); After the War; Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) – Memorabilia – 50th Anniversary of Gettysburg Invitation; and, Perhaps. Numerous vintage photographs, a list of references and a full-name index add to the value of this work
