Virtual History for Lunch-SS Atlantic
Jun 17 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Join us (VIRTUALLY!) to learn more about the SS Atlantic! Register NOW at the bottom of the page.

Of the Liverpool passenger steamship companies on the North Atlantic in 1873, the company that gave us the Titanic was the newest and the smallest, with only six ships. But, everybody was talking about the White Star Line and their revolutionary vessels.

Then they lost SS Atlantic. It looked like they might not survive.

It was the most infamous passenger ship disaster before the Titanic, and the biggest.

The Atlantic was travelling between Liverpool and New York with almost 1,000 people aboard, when the Captain decided to divert to Halifax for fuel. It wasn’t stormy. Everything was working. Qualified British officers were in control. The latest charts were on board. Of her captain, the commodore of the fleet wrote, “Men like him are very few and far between.” So, how did the SS Atlantic end up on the rocks on April 1, 1873 with almost 600 dead?

After years of painstaking research, Bob Chaulk has answered the questions that have dogged historians for 150 years as they tried to figure out why this leading-edge ship was wrecked.

It took the combined errors of three officers to doom the Atlantic. You will find yourself thinking, “No wonder they lost the Titanic!”

About the presenter: Bob Chaulk is the historian for the SS Atlantic Heritage Park in Terence Bay, Nova Scotia. He is an avid scuba diver and has done many dives on the wreck of the Atlantic. Living near where the wreck occurred has given Bob access, not only to official records about the event, but also to the folklore in the local communities. Bob has tracked down many descendants of the heroic people who rescued nearly 400 survivors.

Bob is the author of five books about the sea and ships, including SS Atlantic: The White Star Line’s First Disaster at Sea. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, a historic seaport that hosted Britain’s Royal Navy during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. His latest book about the loss of the Atlantic is with the publishers and due out in the fall of 2021—delayed by the pandemic.

Smithsonian Traveling Water/Ways Exhibit @ South Carolina Maritime Museum
Sep 28 @ 11:00 am – Nov 7 @ 5:00 pm

Americans are connected to water in ways they may not always realize. And, since water is a shared resource, water connects everyone. With compelling text, imagery, interactives, and videos, Water/Ways reveals the central nature of water in our lives by exploring a number of important questions:

  • How do Americans use water? How is water represented in our society? In what ways do we use water as a symbol?
  • How does water unite communities? How does conflict over water emerge and how do communities resolve it?
  • How does water affect the way we live, work, worship, create and play?
  • How do we care for water and sustain it for the future?

Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils nationwide. Water/Ways was inspired by an exhibition organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, and the Science Museum of Minnesota, St. Paul.

HISTORY FOR LUNCH GOES INTERNATIONAL!

Greetings maritime history lovers! Join us at noon on Wednesday, November 10, for our History for Lunch program via Zoom live from Scotland. This event will feature guest speaker John F. Messner, Curator for Transport & Technology at Glasgow Museums (Riverside Museum), along the banks of the Clyde River. John is the author of the new book, A Scottish Blockade Runner in the American Civil War: Joannes Wyllie of the Steamer Ad-Vance. Grab a sandwich, some chips, and your favorite beverage, and listen as John recounts the once-forgotten story of Scottish-born mariner Joannes Wyllie and his career sailing the world and in particular, his time as a master and captain aboard blockade runners during the Civil War.

From beginning to end, Wyllie served aboard one of the most successful blockade runners of the Civil War, the Ad-Vance. Hear about Wyllie’s near-fatal mishap prior to the war. Find out what happened to the Ad-Vance. Was she sunk by the Union blockading fleet? Captured? Quietly retired? Learn what happened when Wyllie and the blockade runner Deer attempted to enter Charleston at the end of the war. Lastly, find out what a former blockade running captain does once the shooting stops and the side wheels go silent. So join us on November 10 to hear more about the exciting exploits of Joannes Wyllie presented by John Messner!

GUEST SPEAKER – JOHN F. MESSNER
Along with being a curator at Glasgow Museums, John was part of the project team for the Riverside Museum-Scotland’s Museum of Transport and Travel, winner of the European Museum of the Year 2013. In 2015 he co-curated a display about Glasgow’s role in the American Civil War which led to his work on the life of Joannes Wyllie.

Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, he is a graduate of Butler University, Indianapolis and received his MA in Museum Studies from Leicester University, England.  He now lives with his family in Ayrshire, Scotland.
