Kylie A. Hulbert’s presentation is based on her book “The Untold War at Sea: America’s Revolutionary Privateers,” which was published by the University of Georgia Press and will be available for purchase at the event.
She will bring to center stage the engagements and efforts of American privateers in the Atlantic World during the Revolution.“The lives of these men as they traversed the Atlantic Ocean expand the scope and impact of the American Revolution,” Hulbert said. “Their journeys took them far beyond the shores of the colonies, and it is high time we followed them.”
Program organizer Bill Meehan added, “Professor Hulbert is an authority on American privateering during the Revolution, and she will inform Lewes locals about important maritime activity in the War for Independence.”
