Event Details

Battle for the Bay: The Naval War of 1812, Joshua M. Smith

While the naval battles of the War of 1812 played out on the high seas and the Great Lakes, a fierce struggle raged between privateers and small government vessels in the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of Maine. Historian Joshua Smith, a professor at the Merchant Marine Academy, brings this little-known struggle to life, and illuminates the careers of the small but powerful vessels that fought the in-shore war at sea.
