As coastal and international trade dramatically increased after the War of 1812, the federal government was forced to increase safety aids to mariners. To ensure their safe passage, a series of lighthouses was built and the U.S. Life-Saving Service was created. More than two centuries of the history of New Jerseys treacherous coast are preserved in Guarding New Jerseys Shore: Lighthouses and Life-Saving Stations. Gathered from a wide array of sources, more than 200 historic photographs and fascinating, documented text combine to create the only illustrated history of the states thirty-eight lighthouses and forty-one life-saving stations. Sandy Hook, built in 1764, is the nations oldest operating lighthouse. Navesinks Twin Lights was the first lighthouse to use electricity and was the home of Marconis early radio experiments. From the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, which once served as a lighthouse, to Cape May Point, and up the Delaware Bay and River, the fascinating story of protecting mariners from perils Down the Shore is presented and preserved in Guarding New Jerseys Shore: Lighthouses and Life-Saving Stations.
