Abstract:
The sinking of the S.S. Central America in a storm off Cape Hatteras on September 12, 1857, ranks as one of the greatest sea disasters of all time. Four hundred and eighty-two passengers and crew, including the captain, were lost. Also lost was $2 million in gold, which, at today's standard, is valued at $12 million. Treasure hunters have yet to recover any.
