The tall ship Lynx, a replica of a War of 1812–era privateer, under sail near Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. In this issue, author Christopher J. McMahon discusses the history of maritime trade warfare and the prospects that it would be practiced in a future conflict. Lynx (“America’s privateer”) hails from Nantucket and is owned and operated by the Lynx Educational Foundation of New-market, New Hampshire. The nonprofit foundation, led by President Donald E. Peacock, teaches “the history of America’s struggle to preserve its independence,” concentrating on the 1812 era.
