War of 1812 Historians' Roundtable
Four historian-authors discuss the causes and effects of the Battle of the HMS Boxer and USS Enterprise within the context of the War of 1812. David Hanna (Knights of the Sea) moderates a panel that includes Vice Adm. (Ret.) George Emery (In Their Own Words), James Nelson (George Washington’s Secret Navy), and Joshua M. Smith (Battle for the Bay: The Naval War of 1812).
This event is part of a week-long series of activities in Portland commemorating the Battle of the Boxer and Enterprise. The panelists’ books will be on sale in the museum store and a book signing will follow the talk.
