Though U.S. warships seized slave vessels as early as 1800, 4 a long time handed earlier than the military validated an enduring squadron off the western coast of Africa to interdict U.S.-flag vessels engaging during this exchange. Canney lines the Navy’s position in interdicting the slave alternate, nice Britain’s strain at the U.S. executive to minimize slave site visitors, the construction of the squadron, and the way person politicians, division secretaries, captains, and squadron commanders interpreted the legislation and orders from greater experts, altering squadron operations. whereas well-known ships and captains served in this station, none gained contrast within the Africa Squadron.
In the ultimate research, the squadron used to be unsuccessful, although it used to be the Navy’s purely everlasting squadron with a selected, congressionally mandated challenge: to keep up a quasi-blockade on a international shore. whereas Canney exonerates southern-born naval captains, who approached their paintings as diligently as their opposite numbers from the north, he demonstrates how the secretaries of the Navy—pro-slavery southern politicians—neglected the squadron.
