This book is an edited transcript of over 900 pages of testimony, charges, interrogatories, examinations, and cross-examinations of many of the witnesses for and against Navy Captain Uriah Phillips Levy at the Naval Court of Inquiry in 1857. The goal was to separate Captain Levy from the United States Navy after forty-five years of service. The magnitude of the anti-Semitic attitude amongst certain naval officers during that period of history is indicated in these transcripts. The historic chain of events and Levy's subsequent contribution to the U.S. Navy and American history make this a valuable addition to the literature.

About the Author:

Mel Young is the author of Bitter Tears I Shed for Thee, Where They Lie, and Last Order of the Lost Cause from University Press of America.

Review:

The official U.S. Navy Court records are compelling evidence that the Navy was as dedicated to eradicating that malignancy [anti-Semiticism] in 1857, as it remains today. (William O. Miller, RADM JAGC, U.S. Navy (Ret.), formerly Judge Advocate General of the Navy)

Young has gathered the most useful excerpts from the trial and presented them in an easy-to-read format. . . . This book can prove extremely valuable for those interested in Levy's career, and the nature of antisemitism in the United States during the early nineteenth century. (The American Jewish Archives Journal)

Noted historian Mel Young brings together an impressive array of primary-source documents detailing the six times Levy was court-martialed. In every case, the reader is brought into the courtroom to witness the vicious specter of anti-semitism.... Uriah takes the reader back in time and offers amazing insight into naval procedure, legal process, and American social history.... Whether you are interested in legal history, naval history, or the fight for freedom and justice for all, Mel Young's newest book, Uriah, is amazing and well worth the read. (Rabbi Joshua Lief, 2009 The Temple)

This short book edited by Mel Young, himself a West Point graduate (Class of 1952), attempts to show, by excerpts from the offical records of a Naval Court of Inquiry, the parallel issues between the Biblical Uriah and the American Uriah, Captain Uriah Phillips Levy, USN, and the trials and tribulations of each. (Herbert Y. Schandler The Jewish Veteran)
