Privateer Rattlesnake history

Frank McArthur

Recommended Posts

I should add that there was at least one other privateer called the Rattlesnake during the American revolution.  One other was reported in a Philiadelphia  newspaper and that ship was run aground in 1779 or 1780 and burnt.  The MS kit is based on the lines taken off the ship that was built in and captured off Boston as per the website above.
