Hidden History of Lewes

Michael Morgan

Omschrijving

Proudly laying claim to
the title of first town in the first state, Lewes, Delaware, has a history
brimming with little-known tales of gentleman pirates, desperate acts of
cannibalism and a failed British bombardment in the War of 1812. Another
attempted invasion occurred in 1853, when raucous New England fishermen intent
on having a good time were repelled by residents armed with clubs and an old
cannon. In 1926, the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse toppled onto the beach. With the
light extinguished, bootleggers had an easier time plying their trade. On
January 5, 1932, a captured rumrunner was accidentally set ablaze when an oil
slick caught fire on the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal. Author Michael Morgan
explores stories of impromptu presidential dips, charismatic preachers, German
POW camps and other lost tales from the history of Lewes.
