    Thursday, Aug. 19, 2021—Blockade!—Cape Cod in 1812, by Charles Johnson of the Erie Maritime Museum (Zoom lecture) 

    During the War of 1812, the British Royal Navy boasted the world's preeminent fleet, something that quickly became apparent to the people of Cape Cod. This lecture will explore Britain's blockade and how it affected those who called the Cape home.

     Charles Johnson is the Museum Educator at the Erie Maritime Museum in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he has worked since December 2018. Charles holds a Master's in Public History and has a deep appreciation for naval history and heritage, something he attributes to his service in the United States Navy.
