Remembering Kent Island


Settled by William Claiborne and fought for by the Calverts, Kent Island is a land of charming beauty and unfailing hospitality. Local author Brent Lewis regales his readers with tales of industrious watermen, floating theatres, legendary pirates, bootleggers and ghostly haunts. Meet Islanders such as the feisty Margaret Brent, who petitioned for voting rights in 1648, and tenacious Senator James Kirwan, who saved the island from becoming a weapons testing ground. With a warm style, Lewis pays homage to a way of life that is fast slipping beneath the waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
