At the end of the Revolutionary War, Port of Portsmouth towns developed a lively shipbuilding business. Portsmouth-built ships exported timber & other raw materials & imported salt & finished goods. Many of the ships linked seaports of the northeast with the cotton ports of the south & ports in Europe in a 3-way trade. This book follows the careers of the ship owners, captains & merchants & provides biographies of the 203 three-masted ships built in the port between 1783 & 1829.
