The Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs will again offer public lecture/tours of the hull of His Majesty’s Sloop DeBraak, a British warship that was escorting and protecting a convoy of British and American merchant ships en route to the United States when it was capsized and lost off the Delaware coast May 25, 1798.
Lecture/tours will take place at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on the following Mondays during 2014: June 2, 9, 23 and 30; July 7, 14, 21 and 28; Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25; and Sept. 8, 15, 22 and 29. Note: Tours will not be conducted June 16 and Sept. 1.
All programs begin at the Zwaanendael Museum, 102 Kings Highway in Lewes, where a lecture on the ship will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit A Seaborne Citizenry: The DeBraak and Its Atlantic World. The exhibit tells the story of the vessel, its crew and the historical context in the late 18th century. Ticket holders are then transported, via van, to the DeBraak hull facility in nearby Cape Henlopen State Park for a curator-led tour of the surviving section of the ship’s hull.
Available through www.shop.delaware.gov, nonrefundable tickets for the lecture/tours are $10 per person (restricted to those aged 10 and above) with a limit of 12 visitors per program. Due to the limited number of seats that are available for each lecture/tour, ticket purchases are encouraged well in advance. For more information, call 302-645-1148.
