NU alumnus David Head ’00 will present a talk entitled “Money, Adventure, and the Cause: Spanish American Privateering from the United States in an Age of Revolution,”
On Wednesday, October 25th at 5:30pm in the Gallagher Center Multipurpose Room. The presentation will focus on the Spanish American wars of independence, namely why Americans voluntarily broke laws to become privateers – vessels licensed to attack enemies in times of war – to assist in establishing the independence of another country.
