If By Sea: The Founding of the U.S. Navy
George Daughan, Historian and Author

Join us to learn about the founding and first forty years of the United States Navy, the subject of Daughan’s definitive new history. From the Battle of Lexington in 1775 to Yorktown in 1781; from the Quasi-War with France and the War with Tripoli, and from the great naval battles of the War of 1812 to New Orleans, Daughan’s book charts the false starts, political battles, failures, and triumphs that shaped the fledgling republic’s effort to establish its place in the world.

Daughan received his Ph.D. in history and government from Harvard University.

This event is free and open to the public.
