Thomas Dring was captured by the British in 1782, during the American revolution, and sentenced to the infamous prison ship Jersey, a demasted hulk anchored in the East River off New York City. He survived to tell the tale, and in 1824, decided to do just that. He was motivated partly because the fate of the prisoners was beginning to be doubted, rumors that their hardships were grossly exaggerated, and even that it had never occurred.
