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.

Fiddlers’ Green, John Mecray

February 13, 1937 – November 1, 2017

The trustees and staff of the National Maritime Historical Society mourn the loss of marine artist and friend John Mecray.  We extend our deepest condolences to  his wife Mary and all the members of the Mecray family.  We are truly thankful for his enduring artistic contributions to our common maritime heritage.  Fair winds, John.

John moved his family to Newport, RI the same year that the Tall Ships first came to the Island in 1976 and launched his second career as a marine artist. John combined his superb painting talent with an encyclopedic knowledge of sea faring history. Over the years his paintings and rare drawings were hung in homes of America’s premier art collections.

John’s keen interest in yachts and yachting history led to the founding of the Museum of Yachting and their annual classic yacht regatta. In 1993, he helped found the International Yacht Restoration School, IYRS, where he was trustee. John is a member of the Mystic Seaport Museum’s Yachting Committee, the New York Yacht Club, The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Herreshoff Marine Museum, among others.

 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the International Yacht Restoration School, 449 Thames Street, Newport, RI 02840 or the Hope Hospice Palliative Care Rhode Island, 1085 North Main Street, Providence, RI 02904 or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Young America—New York in the 1890s  by Patrick O’Brien

Spectacular Framed 18″x 24″ Oil on Canvas
by Award Winning Marine Artist Patrick O’Brien

Offered for Sale by the National Maritime Historical Society

If you didn’t get the opportunity at our Annual Awards Dinner, now is your chance to take home the spectacular Young America – New York in the 1890s by world-renowned marine artist Patrick O’Brien, and to get an intimate glimpse into how he created the magnificent piece.  Click here or on the image above to play a short video about Patrick’s methods, extensive research and his painstaking attention to detail in producing the historic bird’s eye view of New York City’s Hudson River waterfront.  Young America – New York in the 1890s is now offered for sale by the National Maritime Historical Society for $6,000.

Young America by Patrick O'BrienThe painting presents old New York from a view over the Hudson River across from the current World Trade Center, and is based on exhaustive research into the history of New York, its waterfront, its architecture and its growth. The artist consulted numerous old maps, prints, and photos, from sources such as The NY Historical Society and The Library of Congress.  At that time, the towers of the newly completed Brooklyn Bridge were the tallest structures in New York. At the far left is St Paul’s Church (still existing, on Broadway.) To the left of the bridge tower is the Western Union Telegraph Building (demolished and replaced by a much taller building.) The spire of Trinity church, at right, was about 27 stories high, dominating the pre-elevator city, but is lost among today’s skyscrapers. And on the far right is a shot tower that was near the current day South Street Seaport.

About Patrick O’Brien

Patrick-OBrien-portrait-photo1-265x300Patrick O’Brien’s striking paintings capture the glory and grandeur of the age of sail. His work gained widespread attention in 2010 when the U.S. Naval Academy Museum mounted an exhibition entitled The Maritime Art of Patrick O’Brien, featuring twenty-eight oil paintings by the artist. Collectors of O’Brien’s work from across the country were proud to loan their artwork for this special event.

O’Brien was a draftsman in a naval architecture firm before becoming an artist. Since 1985, he has worked as an illustrator and painter. His clients have included National Geographic, The Discovery Channel, and the Smithsonian. His art has appeared in magazines and newspapers, on posters and greeting cards, and even on billboards. In addition, Mr. O’Brien is the author and illustrator of twelve picture books for children.

In 2003 Mr. O’Brien entered the marine art field, and his first entry to the prestigious Mystic International Marine Art Exhibition won an Award of Excellence. In 2010 he won Mystic’s Museum Purchase Award, which means that the Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut bought the painting for its permanent collection. O’Brien’s paintings have been used four times on the cover of Naval History magazine, which is published by The U.S. Naval Institute, and in 2007 he was the subject of a four-page cover article in Sea History magazine. O’Brien has delivered lectures about his work at various maritime venues, and in 2008, a production team making a documentary for The History Channel filmed him working in his studio.
