Atlantic Kingdom: America’s Contest with Cunard in the Age of Sail and Steam
John A. Butler (au)
The gripping story of the competition for control of America’s maritime trade routes during the Industrial Revolution. This book pays tribute to the American mariners & businessmen who challenged Cunard, the giant English shipping company that initially monopolized the North Atlantic trade routes in the 19th century. Competition for control over maritime commerce was fierce. Robert Fulton, Cornelius Vanderbilt, P.T. Barnum, Edward Knight Collins, Enoch Train, & Samuel Samuels left behind them a wreckage of human lives, lost ships, & squandered fortunes in their failed bids for supremacy of the seas. Their efforts extended the limits of technology, expanded global trade exponentially, & carried the Industrial Revolution to its fulfillment. Illustrations.
