More Description

During the American Revolution, the Saratoga played a significant role in stemming the flow of supplies to British forces. Sailing out of Delaware River ports on her three cruises, she engaged heavily armed British vessels in spectacularly successful encounters, capturing 12 prizes. In 1781, during a West Indian storm, she disappeared with all hands.
"Mr. Clark has done a memorable job... John Young] steps out of his pages as a vigorous, driving seaman, but most especially as a man who did some genuine naval thinking, both in the handling of a single ship, and on questions of naval strategy." --Fletcher Pratt, American Historical Review
