Investigating Allan McLane and Lydia Darragh

Joe Menkevich provided these links to more information about the Lydia Darragh story.  The story of Captain McClane is especially interesting.  The link to his story is here.

Capt. Allan McLane is a notable and interesting
character. He was so popular and interesting that
Peale painted his portrait.
