    1811 · The Savannah Riots

    Age 2

    A barroom brawl in Savannah on Tuesday, November 12, 1811, had international impact. An American seaman boasted of having joined the crew of a French vessel, likely named La Vengeance. Others became upset at the idea of the American joining a foreign nation and a brawl erupted. The county coroner asked for peace but was beaten with clubs. A second clash occurred the following day when French sailors attacked five American seaman. A day after the second attack, twenty French sailors attacked six Americans. Four of them escaped but two were beaten and stabbed. Jacob Taylor died on the scene and a rigger named Collins died the following day. By Friday, a full scale riot erupted when the French crewmen arrested on murder charges were released. Many were arrested and French ships La Vengeance and La Franchise were burned. In the end, the incident caused disruptions in French-American relations and affected shipping and trade.

    Name Meaning

    patronymic from Dodd ; ‘son of Dod(d) or Dud(d)’ from Middle English Dodd(e), Dudd(e), Old English Dodd(a), Dudd(a), + -son. Alternatively, the name may arise from a Middle English form of Old English Dodesunu, a compound personal name formed from the same elements as above and impossible to tell apart from the Middle English patronymic.

    post-medieval variant of Dodgson with simplification of the medial dgs.
