On Friday, Sept. 28 at 7pm, Maine Author and Maine Maritime Museum Education Coordinator, James L. Nelson will give a free lecture on the War of 1812. The War has often been called "the Navy's War," which in many ways it was. While the army suffered an ignominious defeat after another, the United States Navy came into its own, fightning its way to recognition as a professional and lethatl force. Maine's own part of that history took place in Sept. of 1813 off Pepaquid Point, when the brigs Boxer and Enterprise met in a fight that would make history. Adward-winning author James L. Nelson will tell the story of that famous duel on the coast of Maine.
This lecture is free and hosted by the Sail, Power and Steam Museum.
