This Day in History

On this night in 1776, after being captured from his brig by the British sloop-of-war, Lively, and held prisoner, Capt. Daniel Lunt of Newburyport escaped into Boston Harbor. Lunt subsequently documented the account of his capture and the treatment that he received while prisoner. The Committee of Correspondence in Newburyport accepted his statements as “reliable.”
