Join Mark Wilkins, Curator of Maritime History at the Calvert Marine Museum, as he explores “Maryland in the Age of Sail”. This eight week lecture series includes topics ranging from European influence to the tobacco trade to the Civil War on the Chesapeake and more, through the 20th century.
This talk will explore the transition from sail to steam on the Chesapeake Bay. Originally only sail and rowed craft could transit the Bay—this eventually was replaced by steam to facilitate movement of cargo and passengers across the Bay. Various types of steamers and sailing craft will be discussed.
Lectures are free and open to the public.
