  • 1837-Two early complainants on the efficiency of the American lighthouses, E. and G.W. Blunt, publishers of the famous Blunt’s "Coast Pilot," submitted a statement to the Secretary of the Treasury. They argued that the whole lighthouse system "needs revision, a strict superintendence and an entirely different plan of operation."
  • 1920- The Navy minesweeper USS Swan ran aground on Duxbury Beach, MA.  Coast Guardsmen from three nearby stations rescued the minesweeper's crew with a breeches buoy.  CGC Androscoggin assisted in the rescue.
