Reviews - What do customers think about Recollections of the Jersey Prison Ship (American Experience Series)?

Who Knew?  Jan 17, 2009
Recollections of the Jersey Prison Ship is a first-person account of life aboard a Revolutionary War "hell hole" for a year spanning 1782-83. The ship was at anchor in New York Harbor for most of the war. The account was written by Thomas Dring in 1824, near the end of his life, and was compiled and edited by Albert Greene to form the present (short) book. The account is nothing short of jaw-dropping and amazing, well worth the two or three hours it takes to read. Almost twice as many men died on the Jersey as there were battle deaths during the Revolutionary War! I consider myself a student of history, and I had no idea this was happening.
