Description
 
The first government-owned Navy yard in Philadelphia, the birthplace of the nation and the largest city in the young republic, was started with two docks in 1798. The area was enlarged and shipbuilding at this site increased, notably during the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Author Joseph-James Ahern's photographic history of the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, which contains approximately 150 historic photographs together with informative captions, examines the development of this faithful military institution - the mainstay of the fleet - over the past two centuries.
