"The Tow Rope"Hand tonged in the Miles River in 1939 by local seafaring legend Frankie Alberto Morgan Wilkenship, this rope dates back to 1813. It was used during the British Invasion of St. Michaels. Maritime forensic experts claim the line "a true nautical braid" belonged to the HMS Jabberwock, commanded by Lord Liverrot. The rope was used to tow U.S. warships damaged by Royal Navy cannonballs.
