Piracy On The Great Lakes

Tuesday, June 13
6:30 p.m.

Chris Gillchrist from the National Museum of the Great Lakes will be here in Wayne to present the history of piracy on the great lakes. Piracy was a serious problem on the great lakes from the 1800's right up to the 1920's, in which pirates would steal from shipping freighters and sell the goods on the black market. Common targets were lumber, venison, and illegal alcohol.
