Voyage to the first of December; a novel by Henry Carlisle( Book )
14 editions published between 1972 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 563 libraries worldwide
Drawn from the facts of a notorious episode in U.S. naval history, the Somers Mutiny Affair of 1842, Carlisle has crafted a stunning novel in the tradition of great stories of the sea. The story of the conflict between eighteen-year-old Midshipman Philip Spencer, son of President Tyler{u2019}s Secretary of War, and the man of necessities, Alexander Slidell Mackenzie, commander of the Somers, provides an existential excursion to the center of a tragedy in our past which brilliantly illuminates the present. On the first of December in 1842, Philip Spencer was hanged at sea along with two sailors, the three having been charged with leading a conspiracy to capture their ship, the brig of war Somers. Voyage to the First of December re-creates this controversial incident through the journal of the ship{u2019}s surgeon. Was there a real mutiny which nothing less than execution could check--or had the officers acted in panic, the commander for perhaps darker reasons? What happened at sea that the court-martial chose to overlook? --Amazon.com
