Shipwrecks: The Mysterious Wreck of the Glenesslin (Oregon, 1913)

Video Find: Excellent short video on a legendary Oregon shipwreck, wreck of the Glenesslin. From YouTube:

"The Glenesslin was a beautiful, speedy windjammer built in Liverpool in 1885 that had an illustrious 27 year career, but the demise of this vessel is shrouded in mystery. Historians simply have no idea why the ship ran straight into a cliff in the middle of a clear day (though just how clear that day was is in question, hence the fog bank in the animation). The captain had been drinking and the possibility of fraud was explored, but nothing was ever confirmed.
