In the afternoon of September 5, 1813, the British brig Boxer and the American brig Enterprise engaged in battle just off Maine’s Pemaquid Point in full view of those on shore. That early American victory would become a rallying point for a fledgling nation at war against a far superior military force.

Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine, commemorates that historic moment in a program on Wednesday, August 7 [2013], from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Learning Center at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. The program will feature author James L. Nelson and the folk duo Castlebay.
