It is a book about the struggle of a man against political influence and corruption, and it is also a story about the man himself and about the Navy in which he served. Reigart B. Lowry was a career naval officer who spent forty years in the U.S. Navy. He played an active role in many of the highlighted operations of the Navy from 1840 to 1880. He joined the Civil War. After the Civil War, military operations lessened, government corruption increased, and politicians tried to gain more influence in the Navy.
