The 1814 Treaty of Ghent pledged all parties to cooperate in eliminating the international slave trade. England, whose naval strength was unmatched in the world, policed the coast of Africa and, despite American opposition, stopped and searched American and other vessels. Monroe describes joint American-English efforts to suppress the slave trade, the status of treaty negotiations, and other aspects of U.S. maritime history, including rights of U.S. vessels during the recent European Wars. Also included are reports and documents from the Executive departments. Most of the folding tables concern the organization of the Army. Item #39038
