Legacy and Shipwrecks

(p.280) 8 Afterword
A Civil War Gunboat in Pacific Waters

Hans Konrad Van Tilburg

University Press of Florida

For the tale of the USS Saginaw and her crew, maritime heritage falls under three different themes: what we choose to remember from the historical narrative (re-created here from documentary record); what we have left from the event as artifacts on shore; and what the sea has kept for us hidden beneath the waves. And all of these are associated with specific geographical locations: the National Archives; the Naval Academy at Annapolis; Mare Island, California; and Midway and Kure atolls. The legacy of the USS Saginaw and all of her Pacific passages lives on in these different ways.

Keywords:   shipwrecks, USS Saginaw, artifacts, geographical locations, archives, U.S. Navy
