Here’s a snippet regarding what’s in store for attendees!

On the evening of January 17th, 1865, while the American Civil War was still raging, the crew of the clipper ship Sir John Franklin found themselves enveloped in a thick fog as they approached the Port of San Francisco. However, tragedy would intervene, just as it had for the ship’s namesake (a reference to the ill-fated arctic explorers of the Franklin Expedition), for this ship and crew were destined to wreck.
