Abstract

Book Reviews was appropriately filed, the presiding judge would appoint prize commissioners to assist determining adjudication of the prize claim. Prize claims were based on evidence "limited to the depositions, interrogations, and affidavits taken of the crew of the capturing vessel and of the captured vessel, as well as the papers and documents of the captured ship" (91). Once a prize claim was established among the actual participants in a ship seizure, prize statutes provided an explicit formula to distribute prize proceeds among the captors. The authors acknowledge that such prize claims records are important archival resources on Civil War captures such as the Denbigh. A ship's papers, cargo manifests, prize claim paperwork, eye witness testimony, and even seized mail provide a historical snapshot of the circumstances surrounding a ship's capture. Today the vast majority of prize court information about Civil War era seizures resides with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in regional depositories throughout the United States. The authors return to the fate of the Denbigh and her owners, the European Trading Company, in the final chapter, identifying several blockade runners owned and operated by the aforementioned company. Of those cited ships, the Denbigh proved
