On 4 August 1852 in Birkenhead, 795 migrants, predominantly Highland Scots, boarded the emigrant vessel, the Ticonderoga, many of them having never even seen the ocean before...

One by one, families would be forced to watch their loved ones die, slowly, right before their eyes they would slip into the grips of violent and desperate hysteria before, passing into a coma, never to wake up again... This is the tragic story of the plague ship; Ticonderoga.
