Welcome...


McLean Research Associates is dedicated to producing software that works, web sites that are tuned to human beings, presenting little known facts about the US Civil War, and accomplishing genealogical research.


We also will accomplish research in our local Norwich, CT library for a minimal fee.

In commemoration of the 150 years since the Civil War - or more appropriately in the vernacular of the day - War of the Rebellion (Northern) - or War of Yankee Aggression (Southern) we are featuring a quote and picture of the day from the Naval Records

RADM Henry K Thatcher, West Gulf Squadron, writes LCDR George H Perkins, USS Chickasaw "As soon as the Chickasaw is ready for sea, you will proceed to New Orleans, in tow of the U. S. S. Sebago, and report to Commander Downes, senior officer at that place." Fleet Captain E Simpson, endorses it "This takes effect when the court adjourns."

RADM Samuel P Lee, Mississippi Squadron, writes Master W C Coulson, USS Moose, "Proceed with the Moose under your command to Jefferson Barracks, Mo., and discharge with all practicable dispatch the ordnance stores with which the vessel is loaded. Report your arrival to Lieutenant-Commander Babcock and deliver to him the invoices of the stores. Return to this place as soon as the Moose is discharged."

Teachers and Educators - we have several Civil War presentations covering the US Navy throughout the Civil War which include our portable museum, Submarines, and key naval and land battles. Check out our Civil War section for more details.
