Royal Navy capture American-built slave ship "Sunny South" off Mozambique

The American-built ship Sunny South had sailed from New York to Havana, refitted and renamed the Manuela, and then sailed for the African coast.  She was pursued and captured by the British warship Brisk and found to have hundreds of slaves aboard. The ship was confiscated and later wrecked. (By John Osborne)
