Learn about the life of Captain Henry Green (1794-1873), who was born in Sag Harbor and went to sea for the first time aboard the ship ‘Fair Helen,’ eventually captaining several other whaling vessels. Captain Green kept detailed journals of his adventures at sea and his quest for treasures. This video will discuss how he achieved substantial wealth along the way. Many of his journals are now on display at the Southold Historical Society’s Horton Point Lighthouse location.
