Starting files for a serious salvor..! The France
Collision and foundering of the France (19th century)
The foundering of the French steamer France brings consternation on the insurance places as many passengers lost their lives and a lot of property was destroyed. She had 150 passengers, but only lifeboats for 100...
She left New York for Le Havre with a large general cargo and US$ 20.000 in specie. The collision took place 50 miles off the Nantucket Lightship.
