Disaster Shipwrecks Facts And Myths

Disaster Shipwrecks Facts And Myths

Exactly how many vessels have been wrecked on that particularly perilous shore over the past four centuries, no one will ever know. Some were famous for their elegant accommodations or admired for their speed, while the majority of others labored as virtually anonymous, unheralded workhorses whose doom on some bleak, rocky point garnered only a fleeting mention on the shipping page of a newspaper. One of the former was the side-wheeler Tennessee, inbound for San Francisco from Panama when she went aground and was wrecked in a dense fog at Indian Cove (later named Tennessee Cove) just four miles from the Golden Gate.
