Guide to the Partial Logbook of the Ship Leonidas MS 570
The Leonidas traveled regularly between Charleston, South Carolina, and Boston, under command of Capt. George Bugnon.
The log covers the period February 10, 1827, through November 19, 1828, and contains daily reports at sea and in port. The initial pages, and those for the months of May and June 1827, are missing. Entries indicate that the ship departed from its usual Charleston to Boston route in August 1828 and sailed for New York, then to Vera Cruz, Mexico, arriving there three months later. The partial logbook contains approximately 60 pages and measures 11” x 16.25”.
This material is open for research.
