“New York-The David Crockett Sailing From the East River” by John Stobart
The clipper ship David Crockett was launched in 1853 from the Greenman & Co. Shipyard in Mystic,
Connecticut. Carrying three skysails, she became famous for her consistent fast runs between New York
and San Francisco. She is the subject of the sea song “The Leaving of Liverpool,” a forebitter dated to
some time between 1863 and 1874, when the ship was commanded by Captain John A. Burgess. Burgess
was known as a tough master. He was lost overboard in 1874
