Join author Art Milmore as he recounts the tragic story of the steamship Portland, which sank with her whole crew in 1898, during the same blizzard that devastated Hingham and the surrounding area. Through over 40 minutes of underwater footage of the wreck, and drawing on more than 30 years of research, the author will recount the vessel's story, and a life lived in pursuit of her mysteries. Including personal accounts of decades spent researching the shipwreck with famed New England author Edward Rowe Snow, Milmore's narrative captures the behind the scenes story of the greatest 19th century steamship disaster in the Northeast.
