Welcome...


McLean Research Associates is dedicated to presenting little known facts about the US Navy in the Civil War, presentations on a myriad of astronomical topics,STEM workshops, and letterboxing.


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

RADM Henry K Thatcher, Gulf Squadron, writes SECNAV "I have the honor to enclose herewith a report of Acting Volunteer Lieutenant Samuel Belden, late commanding U. S. S. Pink, of the loss of that vessel on Dauphin Island on the 23d instant. Every effort will be made to save the property which can be reached, and a court of enquiry ordered to investigate the circumstances of the loss."

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
