The Logs of the Chariot Royal is the saga of the Chariot Royal's 1752-1753 campaign to New Orleans, then capital of the French province of Louisiana. Her mission: to transport to Louisiana the newly appointed governor, Louis de Kerlérec, and to bring back to France the out-going governor, Pierre-François de Rigaud, marquis de Vaudreuil. Included are complete translations (French to English) of two surviving ship's logs, one by her captain, François-Claude du Bot de Brunolo, the other by her second captain, François-Henri de La Tullaye, who took command of the ship at Brunolo's death. The work includes a discussion of the campaign and the characters involved plus lists of the crew and the forty soldier-recruits who were being transported to their new posts in Louisiana. Supplementing the text are maps, a plot of the ship's ocean track, drawings of the ship's cargo hold, a glossary of the people, places, and ships named in the logs, comprehensive end notes, and a complete index.
