USS SPITFIRE WITH ART COHN

On August 30th, Historic Palmyra will be hosting Art Cohn for an informative talk about the USS Spitfire, a 1776 gunboat from Benedict Arnold’s fleet. Spitfire’s wreck is currently in Lake Champlain and has been documented by the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. Art will be joining us at 7 pm at the Alling Coverlet Museum, 122 William St., Palmyra. This is a no charge event.

Art is travelling with Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s (LCMM’s) replica 1862 canal schooner Lois McClure which will be in port at Palmyra and open on August 31st, 2pm-6pm, during her 2017 Legacy Tour commemorating the Erie Canal Bicentennial. The World Canals Conference, which celebrates canals as “agents of transformation,” inspired the 2017 “Legacy Tour” of Lois McClure.
