Today is the 87th anniversary of the 1923 grounding of seven destroyers at Point Perdanales, California, also called Honda Point.

Twenty-three sailors died, and the seven ships were left in place to be… Read the rest of this entry »

Eleven years after his daring 1804 raid to destroy the captured frigate USS Philadelphia held by Tripoli during the first Barbary War, Stephen… Read the rest of this entry »
