Joshua Davis was a native of Boston born in 1760, as his short memoir attests he was an experienced sailor and seasoned campaigner. In 1779, he boarded the 20 gun privateer, the Jason, on a mission to capture as many British ships as possible, he and his crewmates were successful in their search for targets along the eastern seaboard. However, on a very calm day with no hope of escape, his ship was run down by the British frigate Surprise and captured. Pressed in British service, Davis did his best to make a nuisance of himself, often punished for his crimes, clapped in irons or confined.

A fascinating story of early American maritime adventure.… (más)
