The Trial of USS Chesapeake's Lieutenant Cox

The newest issue of The Daybook is now online. In this issue, Lieutenant Cox is put on trial for losing the frigate USS Chesapeake. Fair trial or convenient scapegoat for one of the Navy's worst defeats? Read it and decide for yourself. This issue also introduces readers to William Brown, Chesapeake's African American sailor who was put on trial before Cox. In addition, this issue discusses the connection between sci-fi master Robert Heinlein and the frigate Chesapeake!
