The Boston Massacre, the Great Awakening, and even George Washington played a part in the real life voyages of the smallest of His Majesty's schooners, the Sultana, as she crisscrossed the waterways of the colonies from 1768-1771. As the winds of freedom began to collect just beyond the horizon, Lieutenant John Inglis and Master David Bruce launched into their tour, hunting down smugglers, supporting customs officers, and serving as a visible reminder of England's sovereignty. This story offers the unique view of colonial life from the deck of a schooner as the servants of the Crown struggled among the squalls of unrest that characterized life in a land that no one dreamed would soon be in a war for independence.
