Join Annapolis Maritime Museum for their 5th lecture of the 2021 Winter Lecture Series, featuring speaker Dr. Susan Langley.
Learn about our Nation’s newest National Marine Sanctuary which encompasses more than 100 vessels constructed by the civilian U.S. Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corp. to ferry supplies to Europe during WWI, presenting the largest fleet of historic vessels in the world. Discover fascinating historical aspects such as the importance of the area to the First Nations peoples, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, WWI and WWII, and the Great Depression, as well as the history of commercial fishing through the centuries. Langley will also explain why there are many reasons to visit this peaceful enclave just 30 miles south of the Nation’s capital, including excellent fishing and birdwatching.
Registration is $10 and registration is required, including AMM members.
