(Richard Lee Brand, 29 May 2019) Commemorating the ship Advance returned in 1851 financed by an American Merchant Henry Grinnell rescue effort to find the lost Franklin expedition. Led by Lieutenant Edwin De Haven, the team explored the accessible areas along Franklin's proposed route. In coordination with British expeditions, they identified the remains of Franklin's Beechy Island winter camp, providing the first solid clues to Franklin's activities during the winter of 1845 before becoming icebound themselves.
