Wreck of the Medusa: mutiny, murder, and survival on the high seas
In 1816, a fleet of ships left France to accept the British hand-over of the port of Saint-Louis in Senegal. Among them was the frigate Medusa. A month after it set sail, she shank miles off of Africa's west coast, leaving the passengers to flee on lifeboats and a raft cobbled together from parts of the sinking ship. After a failed attempt by those in the lifeboats to tow the raft, it--and the more than 150 people aboard--were abandoned. This is the horrific tale, filled with suicide, murder, and cannibalism, of those left behind.
