Heaven’s Ditch Seminar with Jack Kelly 10 March

 

Heaven’s Ditch: God, Gold and Murder on the Erie Canal
Presentation and Book Signing with Author Jack Kelly

Register Here for 10 March, 2018
Registration at 10:30 AM, Lecture at  11:00 AM
Hendrick Hudson Free Library, 185 Kings Ferry Road, Montrose, NY

Join us as author Jack Kelly offers a fresh look at a critical moment in American history as the nation celebrates the Canal’s bicentennial.  A technological marvel of its age, the Erie Canal was the epitome of the can-do attitude of the age of the common man. The visionaries of the era didn’t just dream, they made things happen, building a 360-mile waterway entirely by hand. They invented new religions and new modes of living. The canal made New York the financial capital of America, brought the modern world crashing into the frontier and stimulated the nation’s commerce for decades to come.  Heaven’s Ditch illuminates the spiritual and political upheavals along this “psychic highway” from its opening in 1825 down through 1844. It tells its story through a fascinating cast of characters: William Morgan planned to expose the secrets of Freemasonry–his fate permanently altered American politics. Charles Finney touched off the greatest revival of religion in our history. “Wage slave” Sam Patch became America’s first celebrity daredevil. William Miller envisioned the apocalypse. Joseph Smith, a farm boy and spiritual prodigy, gave birth to a new and distinctly American religion. Along the way, the reader encounters the very first “crime of the century,” a treasure hunt, searing acts of violence, a visionary cross-dresser, and a panoply of fanatics, mystics, and hoaxers. The climax arrives on the day millions believe the world will end.

The Public is invited. Please register here or contact NMHS at 914737-7878, ext. 0 if you plan to attend. A $5-$10 donation is appreciated.  After the lecture, NMHS will host a luncheon—$25 prepaid with cash bar.  Reservations are required for lunch.

Iron Dawn Seminar with Richard Snow 27 January

Iron Dawn: The Monitor, the Merrimack, and the Civil War Sea Battle that Changed History – Presentation and Book Signing with Author Richard Snow

Register Here for Saturday, 27 January
Registration at 10:30 AM, Lecture at  11:00 AM
Hendrick Hudson Free Library, 185 Kings Ferry Road, Montrose, NY

Author Richard Snow argues that no single sea battle has had more far-reaching consequences than the one fought in the harbor at Hampton Roads, Virginia, in March 1862. The Confederacy, with no fleet of its own, built an iron fort containing ten heavy guns on the hull of a captured Union frigate named the Merrimack. The North got word of the project when it was already well along, and, in desperation, commissioned an eccentric inventor named John Ericsson to build the Monitor, an entirely revolutionary iron warship – at the time, the single most complicated machine ever made. Abraham Lincoln himself was closely involved with the ship’s design. Rushed through to completion in just 100 days, it mounted only two guns, but they were housed in a shot-proof revolving turret. The ship hurried south from Brooklyn (and nearly sank twice on the voyage), only to arrive to find the Merrimack had arrived blazing that morning, destroyed half the Union fleet, and would be back to finish the job the next day. When she returned, the Monitor was there. She fought the Merrimack to a standstill, and saved the Union cause. As soon as word of the battle spread, Great Britain—the foremost sea power of the day—ceased work on all wooden ships. A thousand-year-old tradition ended, and the path to the naval future opened.

The Public is invited. Please register here or contact NMHS at 914737-7878, ext. 0 if you plan to attend. A $5-$10 donation is appreciated.  After the lecture, NMHS will host a luncheon—$25 prepaid with cash bar.  Reservations are required for lunch.

Reception at 6:00 PM; Dinner at 7:00 PM
Business/Cocktail Attire

Email/Print Invitation PDF

The National Maritime Historical Society and the National Coast Guard Museum Association will honor three distinguished individuals at their National Maritime Awards Dinner on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at the elegant and historic Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.  This illustrious event brings together in one place those who love and serve the sea—leaders of the military sea services, maritime authors, artists, scientists, sea explorers, competitive yachtsmen, boat designers and builders, cruise operators, maritime educators, museums, philanthropists and government officials who have supported America’s maritime heritage.

For information about sponsoring this event and advertising in the dinner journal, please see the Sponsorship and Journal Ad materials and contact Wendy Paggiotta at vicepresident@seahistory.org.  We gratefully acknowledge Fleet Sponsors J. W. Marriott Jr. and Donald T. “Boysie” Bollinger, and Underwriter Howard Slotnick for their generous support!

In addition to the annual Live and Silent Auctions offering an array of incredible collectibles, sails, resorts and more, this year’s dinner will also feature the Washington Invitational Marine Art Exhibition Through the leadership of acclaimed artist Patrick O’Brien, a select group of contemporary masters from the American Society of Marine Artists will display their work.  This is an exhibition of mostly small paintings, offering guests a chance to meet the artists, see their paintings, and perhaps purchase a favorite to take home.

It is with great excitement that Dr. Timothy Runyan and Denise Krepp, co-chairs for the 2018 National Maritime Awards Dinner, announce this year’s three extraordinary honorees:

J. W. Marriott Jr. will receive the NMHS Distinguished Service Award.   Mr. Marriott is Executive Chairman and  Chairman of the Board of Marriott International, Inc.  Mr. Marriott served as a supply officer aboard the US Navy aircraft carrier USS Randolph (CV-15) from 1954 to 1956, which he calls an important learning experience and one that greatly influenced his management style in the hospitality industry. Marriott International maintains a “Spirit to Serve” philosophy, fostered by J. W. Marriott, to provide extensive corporate support to America’s returning veterans. Mr. Marriott places a great emphasis on people—his staff, communities, and guests. He served 40 years as the world-famous hotel chain’s chief executive officer, before stepping down in March of 2012. His leadership spans more than 60 years building the global hospitality company to what it is today, with 6,500 properties across 30 brands in 127 countries and territories, with approximately 675,000 people worldwide who wear the Marriott badge.  Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert, USN (Ret.), former Chief of Naval Operations, will present the award.

 

William C. Baker will receive the NMHS Distinguished Service Award.  Mr. Baker is the president and CEO of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the largest nonprofit conservation organization dedicated solely to preserving and restoring the Chesapeake Bay. With over 200,000 members, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is a fierce advocate working to protect and restore a national treasure and integral part of America’s maritime heritage through advocacy, education, litigation and restoration. Mr. Baker is focused on one goal—“Saving the Bay,” and achieving a clean, healthy and productive estuarine system that will be a model for water bodies worldwide. The director of many organizations, Mr. Baker holds honorary doctorates from several universities and is the recipient of the 1992 Presidential Medal for Environmental Excellence, the nation’s highest environmental honor.  Senator Benjamin Cardin of Maryland will present the award.

 

Donald T. “Boysie” Bollinger will receive the National Coast Guard Museum Association’s Alexander Hamilton Award. After a lifetime of providing quality construction of vessels for both military and civilian use, Mr. Bollinger has continued to be recognized for his generosity and philanthropic giving. His influence and dedication have benefited many organizations, most especially the United States Coast Guard Foundation and National World War II Museum. For his unwavering support, the National Coast Guard Museum Association is honored to recognize this icon within the maritime industry. Former United States Secretary of Homeland Security and Governor of Pennsylvania Thomas Ridge will present the award.

 

 

Gary Jobson, America’s Cup winner and America’s “Ambassador of Sailing,” will be the Master of Ceremonies. Video introductions of the recipients will be produced by Rick Lopes and XXL Media.  Entertainment will be provided by the Mariners Chorus of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, directed by Dr. Katherine Meloan.

Founding dinner chairman Philip Webster recommends that guests make their reservations soon by emailing nmhs@seahistory.org or by calling 914 737-7878, ext. 0, since he predicts this dinner will sell out especially early.  Tickets are priced from $275.  ($150 of each ticket is the tax deductible portion.)  The National Maritime Historical Society and the National Coast Guard Museum Association are also seeking sponsorship support at varying levels from corporations, associations, foundations and individuals that wish to support the work of the United States maritime community at the National Maritime Awards Dinner and to honor the 2018 award recipients while contributing to the educational programming of both organizations.  Sponsorship opportunities from $600 to $50,000 are available.  For  information on sponsorship and advertising in the dinner journal, please see the Sponsorship and Journal Ad packets, and contact Vice President Wendy Paggiotta at vicepresident@seahistory.org.

National Maritime Awards Dinner – VIEW PHOTOS

The National Maritime Historical Society (NMHS) and the Naval Historical Foundation (NHF) honored three distinguished individuals and organizations at their National Maritime Awards Dinner on Tuesday, 4 April 2017, at the elegant, historic and iconic Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.

This illustrious event brought together those who love and serve the sea—leaders of the military sea services, merchant marine and maritime industry; maritime authors and artists; oceanographers, sea explorers and scientists; competitive yachtsmen; philanthropists and government officials who have supported America’s maritime heritage; industrial and pleasure boat designers and builders; cruise lines operators; aquaculturalists; maritime educators; and maritime educational institutions and museums.

Funds raised support the education initiatives of both organizations.

The maritime community gathered to honor Conservation Internaci_42483771tional, an American non-profit environmental organization, and its chairman and founder Peter Seligmann, on the occasion of its 30th anniversary. Conservation International has had a major impact on the health of the world’s oceans and shorelines. Conservation International is a founder of the Ocean Health Index and serves as the managing partner.  The NMHS Distinguished Service Award was presented by Thomas L. Friedman, the distinguished three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist.

The NMHS Distinguished Service Award was also given to the National Geographic Society for its extraordinary achievements in chronicling mankind’s relationship with the water and educating tens of millions of readers and viewers about our global maritime heritage. Since its first issue, National Geographic magazine has introduced generation after generation to maritime cultures around the globe and how they have contributed to our civilization. National Geographic  magazine is currently published in 38 editions in 33 languages in 75 countries, with a combined English and non-English circulation of 5.6 million copies per month.  Gary Knell, president and CEO of the National Geographic Society, accepted the award, which was presented by internationally-recognized underwater explorer Dr. Robert Ballard, discoverer of the wreck of the Titanic.

The Naval Historical Foundation Distinguished Service Award was presented to Dr. J. Phillip London, executive chairman and former CEO of CACI International for 23 jacklondoncaciphotoyears until 2007. Under Dr. London’s leadership, CACI has become a trendsetter in offering IT solutions and consulting services across markets throughout North America and Western Europe. Dr. London served 12 years as an officer during the Cold War, as a naval aviator and carrier pilot from 1959 to 1971, and in the US Naval Reserve until 1983. He has made extensive contributions to naval heritage projects and has served on many boards, including the Naval Historical Foundation, the United States Naval Institute and the Navy Memorial Foundation. The NHF Distinguished Service Award was presented to Dr. London by Admiral William J. Fallon, USN (Ret.), chairman of the Naval Historical Foundation.

March Seminar: Tugboats Illustrated

The March Installment of the Saturday Seminar Series is

Tugboats Illustrated
The new book from architect Paul Farrell
Saturday, 25 March

At the Peekskill Presbyterian Church, 705 South St, Peekskill, NY 10566

Please join us in welcoming author, architect and tugboat enthusiast Paul Farrell, who will give us an introduction to  his new book. In Tugboats Illustrated, Paul Farrell traces the evolution, design, and role of tugboats, ranging from the first steam-powered tug to today’s hyper-specialized offshore workboats. Through extensive photographs, dynamic drawings, and enlightening diagrams, he explores the development of these hard-working boats, always shaped by the demands of their waterborne environment, by an ever-present element of danger, and by advancements in technology. Whether making impossible turns in small spaces, crashing through huge swells, pushing or pulling or prodding or coaxing or escorting, we come to understand not only what tugs do, but how physics and engineering allow them to do it.

From the deck layout of a nineteenth-century sidewheel tug to the mechanics of barge towing―whether by humans, mules, steam or diesel engines―to the advantages of various types and configurations of propulsion systems, to the operation of an oil rig anchor-handling tug/supply vessel, Tugboats Illustrated is a comprehensive tribute to these beloved workhorses of the sea and their intrepid crews.

Book signing to follow.

The public is invited to attend. Suggested Donation: $5 to $10.
Join us for a lunch with Paul Farrell after the presentation.
Cost: $25 prepaid and cash bar. Reservations are required.
E-mail or call 914-737-7878, ext. 0 to reserve your place.
