We Protest and We Burn Stuff: The Gaspee Affair with Nic Hardisty and Shane Allen
Join Nic Hardisty, program coordinator at Tall Ships America, and historian Shane Allen as they discuss the burning of the HMS Gaspee in our own backyard of Rhode Island. This was one of the first acts of rebellion leading up to the American Revolution, and this tale has it all: tall ships, smuggling, a chase through Narragansett Bay, and an uncomfortable musket shot!
This is the first in a series of history-based episodes that explore North America's rich maritime heritage, hosted by historian and Tall Ships America program coordinator Nic Hardisty.
