Pirates, Crooks and Killers:

The Dark Side of Sailing the Great Lakes

By Fred Stonehouse

 

Tuesday, December 12, at 7:00 p.m., Shiras Room in the Peter White Public Library

 

While the Great Lakes never had swashbuckling pirates like those who swept the Caribbean Seas, there were low-lifes willing to rob and pillage when the opportunity presented itself. Others were not above “moon cussing” or showing false lights to lure ships to wreck on inshore reefs where they pillaged the cargos and murdered the crews. Join us for Fred’s presentation on a little-explored but fascinating aspect of Great Lakes maritime history. Admission is free but donations are welcome.
