The Story Behind Georgia’s Most Famous Shipwreck Will Completely Captivate You
When most people think about Georgia, they won’t automatically think about the rich maritime history this state holds. However, since the 1730s alone, there has been at least 1,200 historically significant ships which have gone down along coastal Georgia. Whether it be whaling ships, cotton schooners, WWI oilers or Civil War cargo ships, there has been plenty of activity along the coast of Georgia. Yet, this one particular shipwreck might just be the most famous of them all.
