Book Event: 1812: The Navy’s War

Speaker: George Daughan

Join us for a 200th anniversary book talk about the War of 1812. In 1812: The Navy’s War, winner of a 2012 Independent Publisher book award, historian George C. Daughan tells the story of how a handful of heroic captains and their stalwart crews overcame spectacular odds to lead the country to victory against the world’s greatest imperial power. 1812: The Navy’s War is the first complete account in more than a century of how the U.S. Navy rescued the fledgling nation and secured America’s future. A book sale and signing will follow the talk.
