September 12: Rebels At Sea: Privateering In The American Revolution with Eric Jay Dolin
Bestselling author Eric Jay Dolin will discuss his new book, Rebels At Sea: Privateering in the American Revolution. The heroic story of the founding of the U.S. Navy during the Revolution has been told before, yet missing from most maritime histories is the ragtag fleet of private vessels, from 20-foot whaleboats to 40-cannon men-of-war, that truly revealed the new nation’s character―above all, its ambition and entrepreneurial ethos. In Rebels at Sea, historian Eric Jay Dolin corrects that omission, and contends that privateers, though often seen as profiteers at best and pirates at worst, were in fact critical to the Revolution’s outcome. Abounding with tales of daring maneuvers and deadly encounters, Rebels at Sea presents the American Revolution as we have rarely seen it before.
Full fall schedule coming soon!
