World War I U-Boat Attack on Orleans

| Donations appreciated

Jake Klim, author of the book,”Attack on Orleans, the World War I submarine Raid on Cape Cod”, will tell about the German submarine that surfaced and attacked an unarmed towboat and her four barges off the coast of Cape Cod. A handful of the shells fired struck Nauset Beach, giving Orleans the distinction of being the only town in the US to receive enemy fire during World War I.
