|Mariner Ca 1817 [Not Mystic Mariners]|
An account of The Battle of Groton Long Point:
"In the summer of 1859, stories about the experiences of mariners living along the Mystic River during the War of 1812, were published in Mystic’s weekly newspaper, The Mystic Pioneer. The accounts were authenticated by eyewitnesses to the events who were still alive."
