This Fun Activity involves researching the time period in which "Lt. Hornblower" is set, the early 19th Century, as well as the Napoleonic Wars. Specifically, investigate the style of dress that the shipmen aboard the H.M.S. Renown would have worn as well as what ladies and civilian gentlemen wore. Print or copy pictures from books or websites depicting costume of the time period and create a collage, noting on the back the resources you used during your research.
