ls about a joint Indian and British attack on American positions outside Montreal, Ethan Allen’s imprisonment, and the treatment of smallpoxIn 1806, when retired sea captain and religious activist Christopher Prince (1751–1832) began to write his life’s story, he wanted simply to leave his family a record of his experiences. Today, his autobiography survives as one of the extremely rare participants’ accounts of seafaring during the American Revolution. As a literary work, it shares characteristics of three genres—the war story, the captivity narrative, and the spiritual autobiography. Prince tells what it was like to grow up in a seaport town in colonial Massachusetts, why a boy would choose a seafaring life, of the hardships of fishing on the Grand Banks, and of the education of a merchant seaman. The core of the autobiography, however, constitutes Prince’s adventures and exploits during the American Revolution, on board both British and American ships, as a naval enlisted man, as an officer of privateers, and as a master of merchantmen. It ends with an account of his religious conversion and its transforming effect on his life as a merchant sea captain after American Independence had been secured. The book is served well by the editor, Michael J. Crawford, who provides introductions and contexts, commentary, notes, appendixes, and a glossary. Prince and Crawford together make an important contribution to American naval and maritime history.
