The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn

An Untold Story of the American Revolution

A fascinating collection of stories of American Revolutionary War soldiers and sailors captured by the British and imprisoned, many of them in the infamous ship, Jersey, the hell that floated off Brooklyn. These stories may have been once forgotten by history, but with the publication of this very readable book that will no longer be possible.

The Incredible Untold Story of a Doomed Ship in World War II
