Whitehaven Snow  2010

John Paul Jones Statue

John Paul Jones statue

Statue of John Paul Jones spiking the guns on Whitehaven harbour just along from the fort that he actually attacked. Historically correct, as on the day of the attack in April of 1778 he described seeing snow on the tops of the mountains and was able to storm the fort without resistance as the guards had retired to the guard house because of the cold.
