Segunda Gallega (1833)

Voyage Overview

The Spanish Goleta, Segunda Gallega, left Havana on 2 December 1832 and purchased 284 enslaved people at an unspecified port in the Bight of Benin (no date recorded). The captain, Joaquin Blanco, sailed the vessel toward Cuba as intended, when it likely landed to the west of Havana near Banes on 5 July 1833. Only 270 people survived the Middle Passage.
