Product Description

This is a carefully-researched account of the role of the United States Lighthouse Service during what eventually came to be known as the First World War. When the United States entered the war, the Lighthouse Service came under the control of the War Department and the Navy, and Lighthouse Service employees found themselves working with and answering to superiors from the Navy, the Coast Guard, and the Army.  Communications proved to be difficult, and new technological advances had to be made quickly to provide support for the war effort.  This is a fascinating story taken, in part, from original documents held in the museum's archives and not available elsewhere.
