The Attack on Orleans was a naval and air action during World War I on 21 July 1918 when a German submarine fired on a small convoy of barges led by a tugboat off Orleans, Massachusetts, on the eastern coast of the Cape Cod peninsula. Several shells fired at defending aircraft fell to earth in the area around Orleans, giving the impression of a deliberate attack on the town.
