HIT AND RUN HISTORY

THIS is why we made that sword in the first place. Wrapping up their Cape Verde series, the Gumshoe Historians bead to the capital of Praia. Here the Columbia Expedition arrived in November of 1787, and spent over a month lurching from crisis to crisis. HRH heads to the desolate Isle of Quails, where Captain Kendrick fired his First Officer for incompetence, then chased down his ship's surgeon in the streets of Praia. Not even out of the North Atlantic and men fleeing like rats. Time get out while we still can.

Interviews: Joshua M. Smith, PhD, James J. Lopes, Esq.
Locations: Praia, Cape Verde

The past isn’t dead -- it’s all around us, found in regular, everyday places. You just need to know where to look.

With a crew gathered from coastal towns in New England, we take history out of the library and down to the street-level.

We check out the players, the places they lived, and hear from people who know them best. We get dirty. We make mistakes. And we have fun.

Hit and Run History is the centerpiece of WGBH-Boston's History page - wgbh.org/hitandrunhistory.
