Sea History Today Shamrock V John Mecray

Since Autumn 2018, everyone on the National Maritime Historical Society’s electronic mailing list has been receiving a little something extra in their email inbox: Sea History Today, written by Shelley Reid, NMHS senior staff writer.

From news you can use to fun facts about an unexpected corner of the maritime world, the biweekly Sea History Today has explored the world of food in the Age of Sail, the conditions in a WWI U-Boat, and the historic dive of Lt. Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard into the Challenger Deep, as well as occasional news of NMHS events and programs.

If you haven’t been receiving Sea History Today, we’ve assembled them all here for you. And if you’d like to get them delivered directly to your inbox, join our email list today.
