200th Anniversary of the Battle of Rock Harbor, a Talk

August 12 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| Donations appreciated

During the War of 1812 Orleans fell victim to British Naval harassment. In December 1814, just before the end of the war, the Orleans Militia repelled an attack at Rock Harbor, killing one British marine while protecting Orleans’ shore from invasion. Bonnie Snow and Ron Petersen, noted historians from the area, will talk about the events leading up to the battle and the battle itself.
