An excerpt:

"Captain Fontaine rubbed his eyes in disbelief.  Coming through the choppy waves were about a dozen canoes.  The were dangerously rocking back and forth in the water.  The men in the canoes began shooting at his ship.  A few of the crew of the Anne-Marie were shot with muskets, and fell into the water.  The crew that was still alive quickly pulled up the anchor, so that their ship could flee.  As they toiled, the mainsheet and brace were shot away, and the ship turned helplessly into the wind.  Feeling that they had no choice, the sailors began to raise a white rag next to the French flag that rippled above them in the rain and wind.  The Anne-Marie had surrendered."
