Legend has it that each September, on the first night of the new moon, a flaming ship sails past the coast of Island. The ship looks similar to the vessel that was used to bring refugees from Rhine Valley in Germany to America in the early 1700s.

This was a fairly safe, and trusted route for those looking to start a new life in America up until one day, while the ship was anchored off the coast of NC, the crew of the ship attacked and robbed all of the immigrates of their precious valuables.

After severely injuring and robbing the refugees, the crew proceeded to set the ship afire and send the vessel adrift into the unforgiving Atlantic while the refugees were still aboard.
