' John Paul Jones ' : talk by Ian Finlay
Smuggler, slaver, pirate, buccaneer, admiral, founder of the United States Navy, Paul Jones is today most generally known only as a vague character after whom, for some obscure reason, a dance has been called. John Paul of Kircudbright in Scotland was far from a vague character. At an early age he was forced to run away to sea owing to his having been mixed up with a smuggling gang and being in danger from the ' Redcoats '. Born a nobody, he worked his way up through a life of gay adventure to a position which found him the friend of Lafayette and Louis XVI, comrade of Benjamin Franklin, and the first sailor of the U.S. Navy.
