Captain John Smoot Chapter Kedges Straits Tour

Attached is a flyer announcing our Chapter's 2nd boat tour of the site of the Battle of Kedge's Strait (also known as the Battle of the Barges) near Smith Island, Maryland. The battle was one of the last naval engagements between American and British forces in the closing days of the American Revolution. It was an example of two states (Maryland and Virginia) coordinating resources to attack a British flotilla near Smith Island, Maryland.
