Event Details


Join us to view authentic privateer documents and artifacts from the French and Indian War through the War of 1812, including an original letter of marque and sword from the privateer Viper. See documents proving American citizenship to try and stop British impressment on the high seas, a leading cause of the War of 1812. See a New England town's auction list for items taken by an American privateer from a British armed merchant ship.


Two small cannons will be on display; one of them is of a type and age (late 18th to early 19th century) that would have fit well on board the original "Pride of Baltimore," Chasseur. Each has an interesting mystery that will be discussed. The evening concludes with a "history raffle" of several original newspapers.


This lecture is presented by John Emond, a retired NASA program manager and collector of military antiques.
