Presented by Ed Moore, docent at The Mariners’ Museum

Advance registration is required.

Join us online with Ed Moore, a docent at The Mariners’ Museum and Park, as he introduces the “father of the American Navy.”  Viewers are welcome to send Ed comments or questions, which she will answer following the presentation.
About the presentation:
The ruthless American naval hero of the Revolutionary War had to fight his adopted nation – he was neither born in America nor was his last name Jones – for opportunity, recognition and command. Given his chance, he created the image of the fearless American naval hero and brought the vaunted British Navy defeat and disgrace.
