On October 18th, 1775, British Naval officer Captain Henry
Mowatt, aboard the man-of-war Canceaux, commanded a flotilla which
included the ships Symmetry, Halifax, Spitfire and Cat. At 9:00
a.m., with all five ships anchored of the Portland shoreline, he
commenced bombardment. Eight hours later, three quarters of the town
lay in ruins and aflame with no loss of life. Today, Captain
Mowatt's fiery fleet will leave three quarters of your mouth aflame,
hopefully with no loss of life.
TASTE THE FIRE!
