The Intrepid James Mugford, Revolutionary War hero and native Marbleheader

Thursday May 6, 7:00pm to 9:00pm 

Presented by Don Doliber, Official Town Historian for Marblehead

Few individuals outside of Marblehead, excluding naval historians of the American Revolution, have heard the story of James Mugford, his crew, and the significance of their actions with George Washington’s Navy. Don Doliber will bring us back in time with a colorful narrative of Mugford’s success in this particular exploit that changed the course of the Revolutionary War and, ultimately, the destiny of the nation.  The sacrifice made by this 25 year old Marbleheader gave a jump start to the cause of our floundering revolutionary movement.

Whether you are a native Marbleheader or one who appreciates the history and character of this great town, you will not want to miss Don Doliber’s presentation, which is sure to add to your appreciation of Marblehead and the people who have lived here.
