This week we go into the virtual classroom and learn about a part of the Revolutionary War that not many people learned in school. The maritime portion of the war, which turned out to be a very important part of the war, and how it came out in the end!

Author, Eric Jay Dolin, joined the Lounge, this week, to talk about the role privateers played in the Revolutionary War. His book, "Rebels at Sea: Privateering in the American Revolution" covers this topic, and he came on to chat about its importance!

The guys talk to him about a plethora (a plethora?) of topics, and the sea portions of the Revolutionary War are prevalent! How important were the privateers on the seas during the war? How many ships are we talking about that were privateer ships? What was their payment for doing these tasks? What are his thoughts on privateers being called, "glorified pirates?"
The guys had a great time talking to Eric about his process of writing a book, how he develops his topics, and how long a book usually takes to write. The conversation was so good, that they needed to cut it off!
THAT JUST MEANS WE HAVE A REASON TO BRING HIM BACK ON, IN THE FUTURE!

Check out what Eric is up to by going to www.ericjaydolin.com, and you will also find all the different titles he has in his portfolio, along with where to buy them!

It's a fantastic week! We think you will REALLY dig this week's show! SO, sit back, relax & enjoy our hangout with Author of "Rebels at Sea: Privateering in the American Revolution," Eric Jay Dolin!
