Thousands of Americans suffered on the HMS Jersey, a British prison ship moored in Wallabout Bay off the coast of Brooklyn, during the Revolutionary War. In his new book, award-winning historian Robert Watson brings to life the stories of survivors and charts the ship’s ghastly effect on the city’s spirit, which eventually rallied public support for the war.
