Admission Ticket and Invitation to a Dinner in Honor of Isaac Hull

Anchor Icon

As one of the more prominent American naval heroes of the War of 1812, Captain Isaac Hull was celebrated many times over with parties, dinners, and parades. These honors continued after the close of the war, as a jubilant American public continued to express its gratitude for Hull’s naval achievements.

This printed ticket admitted a Captain Loring to a public dinner honoring Hull at Treadwell’s Hotel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on March 21, 1815. The dinner was likely attended by local citizens, U.S. Navy officers, and clergy, and featured toasts honoring the War of 1812 captain. At this time, Hull was commandant of the Portsmouth Navy Yard. He had recently been elected to the first Board of Navy Commissioners in 1815, and was on his way to Washington, D.C. a few days later.
