You are cordially invited to a commemoration of the bombardment of Falmouth on its 200th anniversary—January 28, 2014—hosted by the Falmouth Museums on the Green. This bicentennial marks the dark day in January when the HMS Nimrod attempted to destroy the town. Despite the shelling, the inhabitants withstood the marauding efforts of the British to force Falmouth residents to pay ransom or surrender their two brass cannons. We will commemorate this with a much more festive event than the original!
“Hullabaloo and the Nimrod, Too!” will be held at the Coonamessett Inn, 311 Gifford Street, Falmouth, beginning at 6:00 pm. Entertainment will include fifes and drums as well as the “Rum Soaked Crooks”, a men’s singing quartet. There will likely be other surprises as well.
.Dress: Celebration casual or period costume for fun and special prizes.
