ship The Grand Design

The Chronicle of a Scots-Irish journey to the New World

In July, 1741, a group of 200 people from Northern Ireland left Derry bound for Philadelphia. Battered by hurricane, wrecked on a desolate island and abandoned by their captain, some had the strength and courage to survive through the winter.

Based on 18th century documents and narratives, this is the story of their journey.
