Klappentext

1903 biography of John Randolph Tucker (January 31, 1812 - June 12, 1883), who served as an officer in the navies of three nations. He became a United States Navy Midshipman in 1826 and had service afloat in the Mediterranean and Brazil Squadrons prior to his promotion to Lieutenant in 1837. During the Mexican-American War, he served as a Lieutenant Commander in the Gulf of Mexico, commanding USS Stromboli until illness forced him to return north. From 1849 until 1855 he was assigned to the Home and Mediterranean Squadrons' flagships. He received his commission as Commander in 1855 when he became commanding officer of USS Pennsylvania. He resigned from the U. S. Navy when Virginia seceded from the Union in 1861, becoming a Commander in the Virginia Navy and then the Confederate States Navy. In 1866 the Peruvians invited Tucker to join their Navy as a Rear Admiral, bringing with him two staff officers of his choice. Tucker resigned from the Peruvian Navy in 1871. He was then appointed president of the Peruvian Hydrographical Commission of the Amazon, which surveyed the upper Amazon River and its tributaries.
