4th of July: Time for BBQs and Movies!

In honor of Independence Day, here are a few movies from the Cal Maritime Library collection to get you through the boredom of being forced to stay home from work.

John Adams


Experience the birth pangs of the nation from the perspective of John and Abigail Adams. See the original use of the slogan “Don’t Tread on Me”!

The Patriot


“Benjamin Martin is a reluctant hero who is swept into the American Revolution when the war reaches his home and threatens his family.” (from DVD package)



The great white shark made famous by this film had so many people to choose from because…that’s right, it was the 4th of July and everyone was at the beach!

Captain America: The First Avenger


This patriotic superhero embodies the greatest ideals of our young nation.

Team America: World Police


Celebrate the First Amendment with this ode to freedom of speech!
