Freeport has its own connection to pirate history: the privateer Dash was built at Porter’s Landing and licensed by the United States government to “subdue, seize and take” enemy vessels as prizes — state sanctioned piracy.
About the presenters: Ned Allen is Collections Manager at Freeport Historical Society, President of the Bridgton Historical Society, and author of Bridgton (Images of America: Maine). James Nelson is the Education Coordinator at Maine Maritime Museum and author of over fifteen works of historical fiction and non-fiction, including several pirate novels (The Brethren of the Coast trilogy and The Only Life That Mattered). He has appeared on the History Channel, Discovery Channel and Book TV, and has received the American Library Association/William Young Boyd award for military fiction and the Samuel Eliot Morison Award.
