James Monroe (Brig)

Now online, the logs for a coastal voyage of the Brig James Monroe. 1815 April 23-June 8 and 1815 July 25-September 6.

These logs are one of a small collection the museum holds of oversized logs, usually loosely bound in sailcloth. The large size along with the very small handwriting of the keeper, present a problem for viewing on the web but readers can still make out most of the entries.

Digitization was generously sponsored by a generous grant from one of our patrons.
