Event Details

Enterprize-hulling-Boxer---On Sunday, September 5, 1813, the British vessel HMS Boxer, a two-masted, square-rigged ship otherwise known as a "brig," was off Pemaquid Point when she spotted a sail.

It was during the War of 1812, and the Boxer had been raiding American shipping off the Maine coast, capturing seven schooners and other ships.

On that Sunday morning, she spotted a sail to the south. It was the American vessel USS Enterprise. People on the shores of Pemaquid Point witnessed someting few landsmen ever see- a naval battle. the fight between the Enterprise and Boxer became one of the most storied of the War of 1812.
