Tonight, June 14th, during the Strawberry Full Moon, at 11:04 PM, it will be exactly 184 years since the S. S. Pulaski exploded off the coast of North Carolina after disembarking from Savannah the day before. Carrying almost 200 souls, only 59 survived and only six of those were women.
When I first heard about this wreck, I had no idea how many years of my life would be consumed with this story, these passengers, and this beloved city of Savannah.
And it all comes full circle on Friday night when we gather at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum with the two people who helped me the most -- the shipwreck hunter Micah Eldred and the curator of the museum Wendy Melton. There will be talks, drinks, QA and treasure...always treasure.
Even the survivors wouldn't be alive today, but they are most definitely alive in their stories, their ancestors, and their bravery.
