Join us on Wednesday, December 2 for a virtual program with Marc Nucup, the Museum’s public historian, as he surveys the British legislative actions that impacted colonial American sailors and resulted in a revolution. 

 
About this presentation: Decades of dissatisfaction on the American waterfront manifested with protest and riot. Was the violence part of a larger movement towards rebellion and eventual independence? How did this dissatisfaction contribute to the beginning of the American Revolution? Come learn from Marc Nucup, the Museum’s public historian, about the British legislative actions that so angered colonial Americans and compelled them to take to the streets in protest. 


Viewers are welcome to send Marc any comments or questions during the presentation, and he will answer following his talk.
