Memorial Day Sails

May 28, 2012

As the U.S. observes Memorial Day, tall ships evoking the Age of Sail visit New York City. My post on National Geographic’s travel blog tells of how those ships’ crews recall a way of life and and different forms of service.

Looking forward to hearing you speak in Mathews VA on June 22! It's my husband's birthday and I got him your War of 1812 book–he's reading it as I type this. 🙂

Fantastic! I'm looking forward to it too.


Thanks so much for coming to Mathews! Charlie and I very much enjoyed your presentation. You came at a good time because less than 2 hours after you left a thunderstorm moved in!

Thanks again, we love the book and enjoyed meeting you!

Enjoyed meeting you too. It was a good crowd with smart questions. Have a great weekend.
