Ran across an account of the defense and subsequent loss of the Revenue Cutter Eagle by the “Riverhead News-Review.” It is a pretty good read. Could not help but notice that the frigate HMS Narcissus, that took the Cutter Surveyor was also involve in this incident.
Oct 11-13 will be the 200th anniversary of the incident. From the report it sounds as if the anniversary will be recognized by the local community. Hopefully the Coast Guard will also participate in some way.
