Fine Art Digigraph Print of Old Scituate Lighthouse and beach. Historic Lighthouse (Completed in 1812) located on Cedar Point along Scituate Harbor in Scituate, Massachusetts.
First light keeper Simeon Bates and his family moved into the keeper’s cottage along the long narrow spit to watch over the new lighthouse. The Bates family soon discovered that it wasn't going to be a peaceful stay. As British warships cruised up and down the coast during theWar of 1812, troops entered the harbor and set fire to Scituate's fishing fleet. Later in the summer, the oldest Bates girls were left at the light-station when the remainder of the family went to town for supplies. Rebecca and Abigail soon spied a warship off the coast, with a barge of Redcoats headed for shore. The sisters picked up a fife and drum and hid behind a grove of cedars. When the British approached, the sisters created as much noise as possible. Fearing the town’s militia nearby, the Redcoats retreated back to their ship.
