 South of Cape Horn is a radio play, originally produced by the Cavalcade of America series, and first aired in December 1949. This radio play tells the story of the sighting of Antarctica by Captain Nathaniel Brown Palmer, a 21 year old seaman who was born and raised in Stonington, Connecticut.  He set sail with a small crew and sailed the furthest south anyone had been before, ultimately laying eyes on the Antarctic continent. The original broadcast featured Mickey Rooney in the role of Captain Nat. 

 The cast are all based on real historical figures. For more information on Captain Nat and the discovery of Antarctica, visit the Stonington Historical Society at www.stoningtonhistory.org
