Abandoned ship - Niantic Empty
PostSubject: Abandoned ship - Niantic   Abandoned ship - Niantic EmptySat Jan 07, 2012 4:42 am

Hi guys

I was doing one of my little research items and I got sidetracked by an image of abandoned ships in Yerba Buena cove 1849 (Gold Rush). I also found a data card which mentioned the Niantic which led to the wilki page and a good read over a coffee. The more I do research the more I like history in general. All these occasions of abandoned ships must have led to so many stories.
