Merton Pence was a farm boy caught in a world of change. Nothing exemplified that more than his time during World War I on the USS Granite – the oldest ship in the Navy. Constructed in 1818, the USS Granite was a three masted Ship-of-the-Line with eighty-four parrott guns. While the ship had an impressive role to play during the Civil War, during WWI she never left port. At the time of the first world war, she had a small yet important job to do, inspire patriotism in the ranks of high society. Merton's journal, compiled from letters to his sweetheart and future wife, describe the way life in the Navy was back then along with a fascinating glimpse into the end of a golden era. He will tell you in his own unique voice how he hoped to see Europe, but instead spent the war freezing, starving, painting, repainting, and attending some of the most exclusive social events of the year.
