A Brief History of New England Whaling with James Russell at the Attleboro Area Industrial Museum

Saturday September 21, 2019
1:00 PM until 2:30 PM


Whaling has been a part of our shared maritime history for centuries. Join Executive Director of the Nantucket Historical Association, James Russell, and learn how Nantucket’s unique location provides a key to understanding the whaling industry’s social, economic, and environmental impact. As one of the most lucrative and capitalized anti-bellum industries, whaling in Nantucket grew to such an extent that, at its zenith, Yankee whalers traversed the globe. Nantucket’s whalers created the first energy cartel in the colonies, provided a spark for the American Revolution, and sailed the first vessel up the Thames.
