I just updated the Wikipedia page for the battle on 29 May 1652 off Dover
I just updated the Wikipedia page that calls itself "the Battle of the Goodwin Sands" on 29 May 1652. I used the latest information that Carl Stapel found, as well as a bit that I found in Witte de With's journal. I may update some of the other pages for the First Anglo-Dutch War, as well. The bad news is that Carl says that the list from Dr. Ballhausen is mistaken about 12 ships and captains for the Dutch (and I do not have access to the correct list).
