Old Scituate Light At The End Of The Jetty
Photograph - Photograph
Old Scituate Light is a historic New England lighthouse located on Cedar Point in Massachusetts. This 204 year old structure was photographed from the end of its adjacent jetty at sunset.
There is a famous story behind this beautiful beacon dating back to the War of 1812. The two daughters of the lighthouse keeper, Abigail and Rebecca, saved Scituate from British invasion by playing a fife and a drum loudly enough to make the approaching enemies believe they were an entire regiment. This inspirational duo was then dubbed "The American Army of Two".
