On December 3, 1872, the crew of the Dei Gratia, sailing from New York to Gibraltar, found the Mary Celeste floating unmanned about 600 miles west of Portugal. The ship was in perfect condition. The sails were set, its cargo of 1,700 barrels of commercial alcohol were untouched , a breakfast meal looked as though it been abandoned in the middle of being eaten, and all of the crew's belongings remained onboard.
