When & Where
SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN
Launched on June 19, 1943, the SS Jeremiah O'Brien is distinguished as being America's last unaltered Liberty Ship. A 441-foot veteran of the Normandy invasion, fully restored and maintained in her original condition, she is as functional today as when she served as a key component of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Bridge of Ships" in WWII. The ship is a National Historic Landmark. She and her triple expansion reciprocating steam engine are a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.
