Hidden History of Maritime New Jersey

Hidden History of Maritime New Jersey

An estimated three thousand shipwrecks lie off the coast of New Jersey—but these icy waters hold more mysteries than sunken hulls. Ancient arrowheads found on shoreline of Sandy Hook reveal Native American settlement before the land was flooded by melting glaciers.

In 1854 two hundred and forty passengers of the New Era clipper ship met their fate off Deal Beach. Nobody knows what happened to two hydrogen bombs the United States Air Force lost off the Atlantic City Coast in 1957.

Lessons from such tragic wrecks and dangerous missteps urged the development of safer ships and the US Coast Guard. Captain Stephen D. Nagiewicz uncovers curious tales of storms, heroism and oddities off the New Jersey coast.

The book will be available in late April and can be pre-ordered on Amazon here.
