Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
 
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.

Other Information

TALBOT earned 8 Battle Stars for WWII service

NAMESAKE - Silas Talbot (January 11 1751 - June 30 1813)
Talbot was commissioned a Captain in the Continental Army on July 1 1775. After participating in the siege of Boston and aiding in the transportation of troops to New York, he obtained command of a Fireship and attempted to use it to set fire to the British warship ASIA. The attempt failed, but the daring it displayed won him a promotion to Major on October 10 1777. After suffering a severe wound while fighting to defend Philadelphia, Talbot returned to active service in the summer of 1778 and fought in Rhode Island. As commander of PIGOT and later of ARGO, both under the Army, he cruised against Loyalist vessels that were harassing American trade between Long Island and Nantucket and made prisoners of many of them. Because of his success fighting afloat for the Army, Congress made him a Captain in the Continental Navy on September 17 1779. However, since Congress had no suitable warship to entrust to him, Talbot put to sea in command of the Privateer GENERAL WASHINGTON. In it he took one prize, but soon thereafter ran into the British fleet off New York. After a chase, he struck his colors to CULLODEN, a 74-gun Ship-of-the-Line and remained a prisoner until exchanged for a British officer in December 1781. After the war, Talbot settled in Fulton County, N.Y. He was a member of the New York Assembly in 1792 and 1793 and served in the federal House of Representatives from 1793 to 1795. On June 5 1794, President Washington chose him third in a list of six Captains of the newly established United States Navy. Before the end of his term in Congress, he was ordered to superintend the construction of the Frigate PRESIDENT at New York. He commanded the Santo Domingo Station in 1799 and 1800 and was commended by the Secretary of the Navy for protecting American commerce and for laying the foundation of a permanent trade with that country. Captain Talbot resigned from the Navy on September 23 1801 and died at New York City on June 30 1813
