The 9/11 boatlift is not exactly breaking news. The 2016 book American Dunkirk: The Waterborne Evacuation of Manhattan on 9/11 documented the event for historical purposes (reviewed here by Rick Spilman for gCaptain). Yet it comes as news to me, via our friend Jean Yarbrough of Bowdoin College. Professor Yarbrough draws my attention to the moving 10-minute documentary “Boatlift” (video below). It’s an inspirational story.


Indomitable New York voices leap out of the documentary. Watching the film, I thought, New York came back from 9/11. I wondered, can it come back from the damage wrought by current Democratic misrule?

I give Professor Yarbrough the last word: “I understand playing down such acts in the Obama years but why during the Trump years? This deserves to be celebrated. I am filled with a deep sense of dread for the future.”
