Share TALK: Cambridge: Birthplace of the American Navy?

Event Details

In 1775-76, General George Washington besieged the British military in Boston by water as well as by land. He ordered some of his soldiers to sea to attack British ships, capturing supplies for the American army. This is a history of privateers, gunboats, and the first American flag—all part of the naval war that Washington oversaw from his headquarters at what is now Longfellow National Historic Site.

 

Speaker J. L. Bell maintains Boston1775.net, a website of Revolutionary research.
