High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! USS Augusta Dinsmore (1863) was a steamer acquired by the Union Navy during the American Civil War. She was used by the Union Navy as a gunboat in support of the Union naval blockade of Confederate waterways. Because of her relatively large size, she was also sometimes used as a cargo ship. By February 1863, Augusta Dinsmore -- a screw steamer completed in 1863 at Mystic, Connecticut -- was operating for the Adams Express Company, moving up and down the Atlantic coast between Northern ports and the Union Navy's blockaders off Charleston, South Carolina, engaged primarily in carrying mail, passengers, and supplies to and from the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron.

The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant v. 28; November ...

In his eighth and final annual message to Congress, Ulysses S. Grant reminded the nation that it was his 'fortune or misfortune, to be called to the office of Chief Executive without any previous political training.' The electoral crisis that dominated Grant's last months in office left little room for political error. On November 7, 1876, Democrat Samuel J. Tilden won the popular vote, but Republican Rutherford B. Hayes could claim the presidency by a single electoral vote if he captured all disputed electors from Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Oregon. Uncertainty gave way to deadlock as the crisis deepened. Grant's mail included a steady trickle of anonymous threats. In late January 1877, Grant signed a bill creating an electoral commission to end the dispute. Hayes won all disputed electors and succeeded Grant without incident. Out of the White House, without a settled home, the Grants spent two months visiting family and friends before embarking on their long-planned European tour. On May 17, Grant left Philadelphia aboard the steamer Indiana. When he arrived at Liverpool, crowds thronged the docks and streets to give him a hero's welcome, and Londoners welcomed Grant with similar enthusiasm. In July, the Grants crossed to Belgium, traveled through Germany, and summered in the Swiss Alps and the lakes of northern Italy. Back in Great Britain, they toured Scotland and northern England, then visited daughter Ellen Grant Sartoris at Warsash, the Sartoris country home near Southampton. Grant spent November in Paris, later writing 'no American would stay in Paris if he found himself the only one of his countrymen there.' The Grants wintered in the Mediterranean, sailing down theItalian coast to Sicily, where they spent Christmas, then to Alexandria, and a long trip up the Nile. The party toured the Holy Land, visited Constantinople and Athens, and spent a month in Italy. After another month in Paris, the Grants were off to Holland, Germany, Scand

Live again the days of the Old West when travel was not only rough but dangerous! The days when outlaws lurked behind boulders and along remote trails, ready to trap and rob the unwary drivers and their passengers. Billy LeRoy, Bill Miner, Charley Allison and Hamilton White III all shared a common bond of contempt for the law-abiding life, preferring to become stagecoach robbers. BANDIT YEARS profiles these four unforgettable outlaws who made the Barlow-Sanderson Overland Mail their special target. BOOKLIST reported: 'Though the major events detailed in this book all took place during a 10-month period in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, they provide a sound overview of the predatory habits of western outlaws.' Mark Dugan, a graduate of North Carolina State University, is a writer and researcher specializing in the history of the American West.
