Brave and ambitious, Barry ascended the ratlines to become a successful merchant captain at a young age, commanding the most prestigious ship in the colonies. During the War for Independence, he faced down broadsides, mutinies, and even a fleet of icebergs. With peace came a historic voyage to China, where Barry helped open trade with that reclusive empire.
