elmuseodelmar ¿Cuánto sabemos del determinante papel que jugó Puerto Rico y España en la Guerra de Independencia de Estados Unidos?
Gracias a la revista divulgativa de historia naval en Internet "Todo a Babor" (http://www.todoababor.es/) y a la obra del pintor Carlos Parrilla Penagos (http://www.carlosparrillapenagos.es/) podemos acercarnos a un capítulo de la historia cargado de paradojas que a muchos nos ha pasado desapercibido hasta ahora.

Captura en el Caribe

El navío “San Juan Nepomuceno” al costado de la fragata británica “Clyde” que se bate sin esperanza ante la superioridad de su oponente, al fondo el bergantín también llamado “San Juan Nepomuceno” vigila la acción después de haber contribuido en su persecución y alcance. El 14 de diciembre de 1781, en plena guerra de Independencia de los Estados Unidos contra Inglaterra, y después de zarpar de Puerto Rico el “San Juan Nepomuceno” capturó esta fragata británica y represó otra anteriormente norteamericana. No serían sus únicas presas pues al año siguiente, y tras la conquista de Pensacola, capturó otra fragata, la “London”. Como vemos en la imagen el navío luce el esquema de colores por entonces dominante en la Real Armada, así como el empleo de entena en lugar de botavara en el palo de mesana.

post_proletkult Good read. <gowans.wordpress.com> is a pretty good blog resource. Posts aren't too difficult to read and cover a fairly broad range of topics with a leftist perspective. Some of the author's opinions are a bit too Leninist and forgiving towards some controversial figures, such as Mugabe, but this read is definitely worth it. #antiimperialism #anticapitalism #iraq #afghanistan #libya #iran #NATO #socialism #subvert #spanishcivilwar #americanrevolutionarywar #cuba #angola #southafrica 3w

thegeekbeardstrikesback Watching this right now and I'm pleasantly surprised. Feels like a mix of Mel Gibson's 'The Patriot' and Jason Bourne The scenario (American Revolutionary War) is quite interesting and refreshingly different recommendable #americanspys #spy 3w

hautedanielle #TattooedTuesday since I missed #MCM - You have to pick your battles. I refuse to let this war become #Iraq - long, unnecessary, with a high toll of casualties. No. Instead I demand #AmericanRevolutionaryWar - Victory, change and a stronger union. If it fails, at least we both tried. I love him. He better earn it. He has a lot of growing to do, and I have a lot of honesty with myself to find within the situation. #Time will tell. 1mon
