Author to Discuss History of Life-Saving Service
August 8, 2013
Author John Galluzzo will give a lecture on the history of the Life-Saving Service on August 22 at 6 p.m. at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine.
Galluzzo will chart a course through the history of the Life-Saving Service from its humble beginnings in the refuge huts built after the American Revolution to its absorption into the U.S. Coast Guard in the twentieth century. He will share riveting accounts of the service’s legendary members along the rocky New England coast whose selfless courage was often the only thing standing between a mariner and a watery grave.
