Historian Joseph Garland chronicles the story of the Gloucester rebels who took the first steps in the monumental fight for control of the New England seaboard by refusing to relinquish the harbor to British fighters wishing to establish their naval base and supply base there. A small but strategic first victory for the colonialists, the contributions and sacrifices of Gloucester and its citizens are masterfully recounted in this “story of the fishing town that took on the Crown”.
