On April 20, 1855, the New York Times reported that a “dispatch [dated April 19] received [in Philadelphia] from Cape May says that a Sea Serpent, one hundred feet long, was seen there yesterday. An expedition has gone in pursuit of him. A reward of one thousand dollars has been offered for his capture.”
The article also noted that “this same Sea Serpent has appeared previously in that vicinity, and about this season of the year.”
How often has the Cape May Sea Serpent really been seen? Have you seen it or them?
