The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny and Murder

Tuesday, Nov. 14 | 6:30pm

Explore one of the most gripping true stories from the high seas! In 1742, a ramshackle vessel of patched-together wood and cloth washed up on the coast of Brazil. Inside were thirty emaciated men, barely alive, and they had an extraordinary tale to tell -- later challenged by other survivors with shocking twists of disaster, munity, anarchy, and murder. What did the court decide? With a story based on six years of research, armchair adventurers will enjoy shipbuilding tools from the museum's collection on view to the group.
