2020 Piracy and Punishment Lecture

 Hugo Grotius’s Piracy Laws


Hugo Grotius

On Friday, May 15th, Holland Society member Ed Tiesenga presented a fascinating lecture on Hugo Grotius’s piracy laws and their continuation into present-day America. If you were unable to attend, the video of the lecture and subsequent Q&A can be found at this link. President Bogart shares his thoughts below.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Society Member Edward N. Tiesenga for his exceptionally informative lecture on Piracy and Punishment.  We had a great turn out by the Society for this event online demonstrating our ability to stay connected across the expanse of our great Country and during times of emergency.   Thanks to all and we look forward to the next online event highlighting the Dutch contribution to America.

Adrian T. Bogart III, 76th Society President
