It was a clear day, with an easterly wind. All at once the signal flew up on the British lookout ships that the French were coming out of port. Seeing this, Nelson ran up the signal for a “general chase.” The effort was to prevent the enemy from entering the Mediterranean. Toward the Strait of Gibraltar went the British ships, tearing along under full sail.Two days later—at dawn of Monday, October 21—the whole French and Spanish fleets had put to sea and were formed in a curved line of battle, stretching five miles from tip to tip, off the southern coast of Spain.

On one side lay Cadiz- on the other, Cape Trafalgar- in the far distance was the Strait of Gibraltar, through which the British were bound the enemy should not escape. Evidently he had determined the only alternative left for him now was to fight it out.About the author:Chelsea Curtis Fraser (1876-1954) was a Canadian-born historian and author.

Other works include “Boy’s Book of Battles,” “Around the World in Ten Days,” and “Heroes of the Air.”
