The Ghost Ship Mary Celeste

Season 4 Episode 1

When  Captain Briggs set sail in the Mary Celeste he had no idea that he and his family and the ship would become the Ghost Ship that people would still be talking about almost 150 years later. This story has all my favorites for the Halloween season. A ghost ship, history, mystery and maybe even pirates. What happened to the family and crew of the Mary Celeste? Its a mystery we may never know the answer to.
