I think there could be a plot hook in this...

Found on wikipedia an account of a short story written for the purposes of Union Propaganda in 1863, the central characters predicament, exiled to sea, never allowed to approach land, their every communication monitored and censored, seems to me to be a perfect plot hook or background to someone Investigators might need to find.

The wikipedia plot summary is linked below:

I love incorporating Historical elements into my CoC games. As long as it doesn't turn into a History class it's good.

Yeah, this begs to be used in a game.

Apologies for the bump after three years. But I have managed to locate on YouTube the 1973 TV movie which is the last theatrical adaption of the story ever made.

I just went and checked the link to the 1973 Dramatization of the short story (Which it might be noted is apparently the most faithful of the filmed versions.) and YouTube have removed the video due to a copyright strike. The Wikipedia link in the OP is still good though.
