      Harbour Lecture Series 2009
      Paul Carroll, Co-Author of
      Thursday October 22nd at 7:30 PM
      Admission $5.00 (at the door)
      On Thursday October 22, Goderich author Paul Carroll will be presenting an illustrated talk and book signing at the Port Dover Harbour Museum . He will be telling the remarkable story of David Wingfield and his Four Years On The Great Lakes .
      David Wingfield joined the Royal Navy in 1806, at the age of fourteen. His service took him to the Great Lakes during the War of 1812. During the war he was captured and held as a POW in the United States for nine months. Following his release, Wingfield had some intriguing adventures on the Upper Great Lakes before returning to England . Once home, he used the handwritten notes kept during his time in North America , as the basis for an account of his experiences there
      Four Year On The Great Lakesis an exciting account of the history of Canada during the events of the War of 1812 and the stories of the people and places that Wingfield encountered during this time. Wingfield’s workis the only known account of the War of 1812 as seen through the eyes of a young seaman. Anyone who has enjoyed the fictional adventures of Horatio Hornblower or “Lucky Jack” Aubrey will be fascinated with this tale of Napoleonic-era naval life right in our own “backyard”.
      Paul Carroll has published numerous articles on the local history of Huron County and maintains www.shipwreckwexford.ca, which documents the history and loss of the packet Wexford in the Great Storm of 1813. He lives in Goderich , Ontario.Mister Carroll has appeared twice before at the Port Dover Harbour Museum and is an excellent speaker
      This will be good
