Show Notes

A Barque, a Brig, and a Schooner Shape History is back! With the 250th anniversary of the HMS Gaspee burning right around the corner, Nic's digging into some of the history he's covered on our sister podcast in years past to debunk the Gaspee Affair's alleged place as the first shot fired in the American Revolution. Sit back and relax while Nic regales you with Rhode Islanders' proclivity for burning boats when they get mad. He'll also talk about some of the great topics we have in line for season 2!

Ships Mentioned: HMS Gaspee, HMS St, John, HMS Squirrel, HMS Maidstone, Osprey, Liberty/HMS Liberty.
