Winslow, Richard E., III
(Portsmouth Marine Society, 1988)
Sailing captains & their crews roamed the seas in search of foreign vessels which they could capture & bring back to port. The prizes were sold at auction & the proceeds were divided between ship owners, officers & crew. Portsmouth was one of many American ports involved in this practice. The author has written a history of privateering in Portsmouth, N.H. from the viewpoint of the captains & the crews down at the waterfront & aboard ship.
