Recipient of the Medal of Honor for valor at the Battle of Mobile Bay, Miles Oviatt of Olean, New York exemplified the courage and traditions of the United States Marine Corps from the Civil War until the present day. Oviatt's voyages aboard the U.S.S. Vanderbilt and the U.S.S. Brooklyn furnished many incidents for his diaries. His descriptions of the battles of Mobile Bay, where he was involved in a gun battle for two hours until the surrender of the Confederate ram Tennessee, and of Fort Fisher are highlights of the book.
