The Whaleboat That Made History

During the War of 1812, Winslow L. Knowles (father to four seafaring sons that grew up in the Old Manse Inn on Cape Cod), did something few captains ever dared at the time: he began running the British blockade of Boston.

An incredible adventure tale, it began with a whaleboat, and ended with the capture of a British warship that was enforcing the blockade. Not only did it become a legend in its own time, the feat is still being written about by historians to this very day.
