Authentic American Artifact


A Journal of the Brig Commerce            written by   Archibald Robbins


Pub.  1851    Silas Andrus and Son    Hartford


After the phenomenal success of Captain James Riley's published account of this Journey in the Sahara following the shipwreck of the American Brig Commerce on the West Coast of Africa in 1815 , Archibald Robbins wrote and published his own version of events. Robbins was a member of the crew of the Brig Commerce ( most of the crew was from Connecticut ) , and his sufferings in the desert after being captured by local tribes was equal to that of any of the other survivors.
