Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Amazon
The Amazon was a Nova Scotia-built brigantine, later made famous in fiction and reports as the Marie Celeste, found abandoned and drifting in the Atlantic Ocean.
A different vessel, the Amazon set sail from London in 1863 to America with 891 LDS (Mormons) aboard. Primarily craftsmen and trades people, they were discussed by Charles Dickens.
