r. Michael Crawford talked upon the subject of his recently edited autobiography of Christopher Prince, a Yankee seaman who experienced adventures and exploits during the American Revolution, on board both British and American ships, as a naval enlisted man, as an officer of privateers, and as a master of merchantmen.
Dr. Crawford quickly reviewed what he had covered in an earlier talk to the ARRT and then picked up on Prince's wartime experience after he was freed from being made to serve on a British prison ship and 'captured' by the Americans.
Dr. Crawford recounted various narrow escapes from death in Prince's life.
Another close call was colorfully described by Dr. Crawford where Prince and a few crewman were stranded in the Chesapeake and barely escaped a band of local pirates.
