THE BROAD PENNANT:

OR,

A CRUISE IN THE UNITED STATES FLAG SHIP

OF

THE GULF SQUADRON,

DURING THE MEXICAN DIFFICULTIES;

TOGETHER WITH

SKETCHES OF THE MEXICAN WAR,

FROM THE COMMENCEMENT OF HOSTILITIES TO THE CAPTURE OF THE

CITY OF MEXICO.

BY

REV. FITCH W. TAYLOR, A, M., U. S. N.
AUTHOR OF “ THE FLAG SHIP ;" "A VOYAGE AROUND THE WORLD;" “ELLA

V-, OR THE JULY TOUR," ETC.

A noble Frigate in the stream was lying,
And at her gaff her Nation's Flag was flying;
THE BROAD BLUE PENNANT floated at her main,
In heaven's own coloring and starry train;
Her low, dark hull in symmetry and grace,
Loomed on the view as she rode in her place;
And her tall, slight spars tapered in their height,
Herself a thing of beauty to the sight."

NEW-YORK:
LEAVITT, TROW & CO., 191 BROADWAY.

1848.
