Appendix A. Tidewater naval commanders --
Appendix B. Ships that have held Tidewater names.
"This illustrated chronicle of the distinctive naval character of Norfolk and Hampton Roads encompasses war at sea, courage, genius, leadership, and command entwined within a sometimes-stormy relationship between the Navy and its civic hosts. Some of the most identifiable names in American naval history - Decatur, Truxtun, Dale, Farragut, Buchanan, Halsey - have all made their indelible mark on Norfolk's legacy, and some of the signature events of American history - the British surrender at Yorktown, the Battle of the Monitor and Virginia, and the defeat of the German U-boat - have all had a Hampton Roads focus."--Jacket.
