Featured Article - The Mary Celeste Story
On November 7th 1872 a ship carrying a cargo of pure alcohol set sail from New York, headed to Genoa in Italy skippered by its part owner, Captain Benjamin Briggs. A somewhat unremarkable event, the journey was a regular trading route. Briggs even took his wife and two-year-old daughter along for the trip and a crew of seven Dutchmen. However the voyage was to end in one of the biggest mysteries in nautical history. One month later the Mary Celeste was found adrift near the Azores. What is more the 103-foot brigantine had been completely abandoned by all on board and none of them were ever found. There were no signs of any struggle, the cargo was virtually in tact, there were no bodies and the captainís log indicated nothing untoward.
