Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Frederick Shoemaker (March 27, 1841 - July 11, 1913) was a captain in the United States Revenue Cutter Service and was appointed in 1895 by Secretary of the Treasury John G. Carlisle to be Chief of the Revenue Marine Division of the Department of the Treasury. Although he was never formally known as Commandant, he is recognized today as the second Commandant of the Coast Guard. Shoemaker was born in Glendale, Iowa on March 27, 1841 to William Rawle Shoemaker and Julia Hepburn. He received an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy in 1858, but resigned his position to accept a commission as a third lieutenant in the Revenue Cutter Service in November 1860.show more
