Abstract:
In May 1788, Captain Boritz sailed his vessel Holy Heart of Jesus, loaded with cannons, to America. The Swiss manufactured cannons were purchased by Congress at the bequest of delegates from Virginia and North Carolina. The captain arrived July 1788 at South Quay, Virginia where representatives from the state paid for the guns with tobacco. North Carolina had insufficient tobacco to pay and the impatient captain dumped the cannons overboard. Several of the cannons were recovered and in 1944, they were displayed in front of several prominent Edenton institutions.
