Speakers Bureau: Jack Tar on the Waterfront

    Improve listing Presented by

Join us online with Ed Moore, a docent at The Mariners’ Museum and Park, when he examines the Jack Tars and how their influence on the Colonial America waterfront created a culture that valued freedom and led to a revolution.

About the presentation: “We Owe Allegiance To No Crown” was spoken by the American sailor during the Age of Revolution. The waterfront culture developing in Colonial America valued freedom of thought, freedom of travel, and freedom of lifestyle. Integrated by nationality, ethnicity, and race, the Jack Tars challenged ideals, hierarchy, and values, influencing first the waterfront then ultimately, a society built on revolution and freedom. 

Viewers are welcome to send Ed comments or questions, which he will answer following the presentation.
