Enjoy a virtual lunchtime lecture from the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park. Discover the origins and historical significance of New Bedford's whaling port. When Quaker merchants moved their whaling businesses from Nantucket to New Bedford, they started a 100-year industry that forever shaped New Bedford's maritime culture. Learn about a daring artic rescue in 1897, when ice closed in around 275 whalemen and left them stranded with limited supplies. An earlier version of the U.S. Coast Guard traveled 1,500 miles overland to bring the men food. Time permitting, hear stories about New Bedford's roles in the Civil War (54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry) and the Underground Railroad. Led by National Park Guide Rufai Shardow.This program will be held via Zoom. To join us, please register online, and you will receive an email with the link.
