12. Wealth and Honour: Portsmouth During the Golden Age of Privateering, 1775-1815

by Richard E. Winslow III

Wealth and Honour, Winslow, Portsmouth Marine Society

The age of privateering was one of the most exciting in American sailing history. Portsmouth ships, officers, and crews were in the thick of all activities, capturing British vessels and in turn being captured themselves. Fortunes were made and lost during this exciting time. The first new book on privateering in more than a decade, this volume, although specific to Portsmouth, offers insights to privateering anywhere. An extensive and detailed bibliography.
