Title: A History of the United States Navy from 1775 to 1898/1902
Author: Edgar Stanton Maclay - Edgar Stanton Maclay was an American journalist and historian. He was reporter on the Brooklyn Times, 1886-1890, and on the New York Tribune 1891-1893; served on the editorial staff of the Tribune, 1893-1895, and on that of the New York Sun, 1895-1896. In 1896 he was appointed lighthouse keeper at Old Field Point, and in 1901 received an appointment at the New York Navy Yard. He edited the Journal of William Maclay, and was the author of "History of the United States Navy" which occasioned much controversy and brought about his dismissal from government employ, by order of President Roosevelt, in 1901. The ground of this action, following Maclay's refusal of an official request for his resignation, was a passage in the History stigmatizing Rear Admiral Winfield Scott Schley as a "caitiff, poltroon and coward" for his conduct in the naval fight off Santiago, Cuba, 3 July 1898. Maclay also wrote "Reminiscences of the Old Navy" and "The History of American Privateers."
