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 presentations on a myriad of astronomical topics

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

In commemoration of the 155 years since the Civil War - or more appropriately in the vernacular of the day - The War of the Slaveholders' Rebellion - we are featuring a quote and picture of the day from the Naval Records

Charles Bentrick, USS Herbert, reports to CAPT Craven of his encounter with army troops on the Maryland side and of meeting COL Taylor. The army consists of 700 infantry and 130 cavalry. They are expecting another cavalry corps and are enrout to Budds Point. Bentrick assures COL Taylor that he can use the many passing tugs to communicate with CAPT Craven.

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. We also have several presentations on astronomy for all age groups

Proud to be an organizational partner of Connecticut Civil War Commemoration sponsored by Central Connecticut State University.
