On this week’s Dispatches host Brady Crytzer interviews historian and archaeologist Charles H. Lagerbom about the British sloop-of-war HMS Albany  and its captain Henry Mowatt, known for the bombardment of  Falmouth, Maine, and the defeat of the American Penobscot Expedition. The Albany  was wrecked off Maine in 1782 and has been subject to underwater archaeology.

As your host Brady Crytzer says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy the interview. . . .”
