Grant, M. (n.d.). The Broken Napoleons. Retrieved from

Excerpt: ALTHOUGH there were more than a dozen cars on the heights near Peekskill, looking over the shimmering expanse of the Hudson River, few knew what was being unfolded beneath them. Some might have seen one of these events, but none?not even those who were enacting the scene? realized the other. And no one ever imagined that these two events would prove to be a joint venture. The first event, which every one could see, took place on the river. Beating its way down the stream was an old, rust?covered boat, the Reciprocity. It had been built fifteen years ago, and its hopeful title indicated it would succeed in foreign trade. Unfortunately, the owners did not realize that hope, and it had found a haven in the ?ghost fleet? of the upper Hudson?the graveyard of ships too good to scrap, but not worth operating.
