Blusterers, Bunglers, Blockheads: Naval Actions of the American Revolution in Maine

The naval action of the American Revolution was fought in many far-flung theaters around the globe, from the United States to the Caribbean to the shores of Great Britain, including, as well, the Province of Maine. But unlike the fighting in places such as Saratoga or Yorktown, the war in Maine was marked by bungling, miscalculation and incompetence on both sides. Award-winning author James L. Nelson will discuss the three major events of the Revolution to take place Down East, and the mistakes that led up to them.

7:30 PM ($5 or free to members)

New Location: The Learning Center at Bristol’s Lighthouse Park.
