Schroder & Schyler
We are in the heart of the Seven Years’ War that opposed France and England from 1756 to 1763. Imagine how dangerous the seas have become, and the trade between France and the West Indies is now very difficult. Schröder & Schÿler acquires a frigate called the Eulalie in order to continue supplying spices, indigo and other products. On August 12, 1779, the ship departed from the river bar in Bayonne, armed with 20 guns on the bridge and a hundred weapons. A crew of 105 trusted men also came aboard the Eulalie to ensure its defense during this long and beautiful journey towards Santo Domingo and its much-prized commodities.
