At a Glance

Experience a lesser-known chapter of American naval history through this special Native American Heritage Month presentation. Join us as we explore the intriguing saga of the U.S. Navy sloop-of-war Decatur. Dr. Lorraine McConaghy will guide us through the critical juncture of 1856, the 'Battle of Seattle,' which was an intersection of settlers, Native people and representatives of the distant federal government. Dr. McConaghy’s insights, coupled with primary documents and vibrant illustrations, will shed light on Decatur's historically significant era, offering a unique perspective on this aspect of history in the Pacific and beyond.
