Wild and Crazy circa 1813
Last week I took part in a fun program at the magnificent Pemaquid Point Light House with my friends Fred Gosbee and Julia Lane, the most excellent musicians of Castlebay. The program was centered around the historic battle between U.S.S. Enterprise and H.M.S. Boxer, Maine's biggest War of 1812 battle, which took place on the waters just off the point. We'll be at it again, back at the lighthouse on September 5, the actual anniversary of the battle. Also on hand will be David Hanna, author of Knights of the Sea, the history of the fight. So if you are around, come by. You won't be disappointed!
