This Week on Dispatches: Katie Turner Getty and the Notorious Prison Ship Jersey

In this week’s Dispatches host Brady Crytzer interviews JAR contributor and editorial board member Katie Turner Getty about a dark side of the American Revolution, the notorious prison hulk, HMS Jersey. Thousands of American prisoners—some as young as twelve—died daily aboard British prison ships, mostly from disease. Fortunately for historians, a number of survivors wrote about their experiences, giving a voice and face to the horrors they endured.

As your host says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy the interview. . . .”

New episodes of Dispatches are available for free every Sunday evening (Eastern United States Time) on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and the JAR Dispatches web site.

Thank you as always for listening!
