Please join us for an intimate evening of War of 1812 History and Music from the Heroic Age.  Nationally acclaimed Troubadour Bill Schustik and Captain Donald Peacock of the Tall Ship LYNX, bring the period alive in a most compelling and emotional way to remind us of the struggle for America’s Independence.  The Chesapeake Bay is known for it’s Baltimore Clippers, Fort McHenry and the burning of Washington, but few are aware of the most significant battle of the entire war, The Battle of Nantucket.

Doors open at 7:00 P.M. there will be a cash wine bar served. Feel free to mingle and meet Peacock and Shustik and the Lynx crew.  We look forward to seeing you there.
