On pp.12-13 of US History magazine December 1958 is a painting from N,Y.Hist Soc shows a painting from French/Indian War of 1757 shows 8 british ships of War leading a 3 masted French privateer to New York City harbor...it has at least 10 cannons a side..so presumedly 20 altogether..
also as the Neartest Court of Admilitary is New York City..it must have been captured near that city...can link to it since since it is probably still copyrighted....any ideas of captured Vessels History?
