"The Mystery of the Ghost Ship Mary Celeste"-The ubrupt disappearance of the Mary Celeste's Captain, his wife and two year old daughter, and the remaining crew of seven, in December of 1872 in the North Atlantic, has been the subject of countless books, articles, and speculation for nearly 150 years. The Mary Celeste was discovered adrift with no one aboard. Evidence showed that the occupants on board had left quickly to avoid some sort of impending danger...but what? And why would they give up the safety of a 180 ton brigantine to that of a 20 foot lifeboat?  Sources: Begg, Paul (2007). Mary Celeste:The Greatest Mystery of the Sea.
