The 245th Anniversary of the Bermuda Gunpowder Plot

23 Aug

The 245th Anniversary of the Bermuda Gunpowder Plot

Author: Michael Scroggins

In the summer of 1775, the American Colonies are in revolt and the British have responded to the growing crisis in the colonies with a blockade of American ports. The blockade hurt Bermuda as the islands already had a shortage of food, putting the islanders at risk of starvation. Bermudians were divided and while most of the island’s population remained loyal the English Crown, there were many who sympathized with the Continental Congress and its fight for independence.

The oldest continuously occupied British settlement in the new World has been welcoming cultures from around the globe for over 400 years. The result is fascinating Bermudian History, including its little-known role in the American Revolution. The SAR will commemorate the 245th anniversary of the Bermuda Gunpowder Plot with this wonderful trip to Bermuda. While a British Overseas Territory, it is in the North Atlantic Ocean approximately 1,070 km east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.  Bermuda is considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean/Atlantic and has been voted by Conde Naste readers the Best Island in the Caribbean over 18 times.
