In October 1735 two merchant ships and a naval vessel left London, beginning a five-month transatlantic voyage to the new British colony of Georgia. Berry uses logs, letters and diaries from this expedition to describe the passengers’ experience of sea travel and their hopes and fears about a new life in America. He also examines how such voyages shaped American Protestantism, as shipboard life gave a foretaste of the New World’s denominational and ethnic diversity.
