FALL LECTURE SERIES: "A War so unpopular...cannot be Supported": New England and the War of 1812
America's Oldest Forgotten War: An Overview of the War of 1812
The War of 1812 is often considered one of America's forgotten wars, sandwiched between two more popular conflicts in the American memory, the American Revolution and the Civil War. Yet, for contemporaries, the War of 1812 represented a "second War of Independence," that would help secure American independence from Great Britain. Jen Turner, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and visiting lecturer at Bridgewater State University, will discuss the maritime issues that led to the outbreak of the War, and describe New England's often tepid support for the conflict.

A Northern Confederacy? Was the Hartford Convention of 1814 an Attempt to Save the Union--or Secede from It?
By the fall of 1814, the opposition of New England Federalists to the War of 1812 was so vehement that the Union appeared to be in danger. In October, Massachusetts invited the other New England states to send delegates to a meeting in Hartford, Connecticut, to draft constitutional amendments and take other measures to protect New England interests. Peter Drummey, Stephen T. Riley Librarian of the Massachusetts Historical Society, will discuss the Hartford Convention and the taint of secession and treason associated with it, and show how debate over the goals of the Convention has persisted for almost two centuries.

Salem Privateers and the War of 1812
Salem, like Massachusetts as a whole, was deeply divided over politics and the war. It was home to both Republicans and Federalists, privateers and smugglers. Salem commissioned 43 cruisers, from great ships owned by merchant princes to open boats manned by unemployed sailors. Captain Michael Rutstein, author and owner and operator of Fame, a representation of a privateer schooner from the War of 1812, will discuss how Salem privateers prowled the seas from Norway to Brazil -- and also patrolled the harbors of Massachusetts and Maine, searching out smugglers. Here are tales of heroism and cowardice, generosity and greed, astonishing luck and deep personal tragedy. *Book signing to follow the lecture.

USS Constitution, Harbor Fortifications, and the Vessel That Never Fought: Paul Revere's Role in the War of 1812
Like many New England Federalists, Paul Revere opposed the War of 1812. Yet, at the same time, like many New Englanders, he derived handsome profits from the war. Patrick M. Leehey, Research Director at the Paul Revere House, will describe how Paul Revere's role in the war in a sense began twenty years earlier, when he established his bell and cannon foundry in the North End. Over the years, the Revere foundry and later Copper Mill supplied shipfittings, copper sheets, and other materials for many of the vessels that fought in the war and one remarkable vessel that never did, because it was completed too late.

All Wednesday night lectures are free and take place at Old South Meeting House: 310 Washington Street, at the corner of Milk Street, in downtown Boston.
