Discover Middlesbrough: They Did Their Duty: Teesside Men at Trafalgar’

Sat 30 October 2021
Events

Following on from the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar – arguably the most famous naval battle in history – a talk exploring the connections between the battle and Teesside.

Local historian, Martin Peagam, tells the story of the battle and its significance and considers how news of the victory – and the death of Nelson – was received locally.

He also reveals how documentary evidence shows that, contrary to
common perception, the ‘British’ crews were both ethically diverse and included women.

Martin then tells the story of the contribution made by local men, each one of whom who could say that he had responded to
Nelson’s call to ‘do his duty’.
