A Mariner's Tale

New York Harbor, ca. 1848

A Mariner's Tale

This is the story of my great, great grandfather, George Price, who spent his life at sea. The second part of his story focuses on the Civil War.

Born in London in the 1820s, he spent the bulk of his career attached to America's premier naval facility - the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
