The most accurate history of Shanghaiing in Portland – vetted by university professors for accuracy — conducted by costumed re-enactors.
Shanghaied in Portland
Join us on a 2.0 hour, small group walking tour of 1890’s Portland when it was named the most dangerous seaport in the world by the governments of Britain, France and Germany – and Shanghaied sailors. You’ll discover the three most feared Shanghaiers of the era – Bridget Grant, “Citizen” Jim Turk, and especially Larry Sullivan — the most notorious Shanghaier of the 1890’s who kidnapped a documented 1,000++ men (and women and children) who were forced to work as merchant sailors.
Tour does not include the so-called Shanghai Tunnels. For one thing, they don’t exist nor did they ever. The myth of the Shanghai Tunnels was created by a start-up tour company in the early 1970’s.
