"If our first struggle was that of our infancy, this last was that of our youth; and the issue of both, wisely improved, may long postpone if not forever prevent a necessity for exerting the strength of our manhood.".......James Madison


"In 1812: The Navy's War, prizewinning historian George C Daughan tells the thrilling story of how a handful of heroic captains and their stalwart crews overcame spectacular odds to lead the country to victory against the world's greatest imperial power. A stunning contribution to military and national history, "1812: The Navy's War" is the first complete account in more than a century of how the U.S. Navy rescued the fledgling nation and secured America's future.

Maine Events in Yarmouth, Rockland and Bath

With the Captain of the USS Constitution

This is an exciting week for those who have been preparing for the bicentennial of the War of 1812. Monday, June 18 is the 200th anniversary of the signing of the declaration of war and the planned commemorations all over the country will begin and continue until 2015.  I have a busy week planned with 3 talks that are open to the public. I hope you can attend one of them.
