Living History Cruise
Sailing Home From Victory
Saturday October 1, 2016
Cruise Maryland Terminal: 2001 E McComas St; Baltimore MD
Sail back into World War II aboard a national treasure. The SS JOHN W BROWN carries you back into wartime. You experience life aboard the last remaining troop ship from WWII. The historic original triple expansion steam engine powers us in convoy through the day. Meeting soldiers, marines, sailors and civilian re-enactors help pull you back into wartime. The entertainment gives the feel of a USO Show aboard ship. Through the day, some air cover will be provided to see us safely on our journey. The troop mess provides sea rations (deli lunch), coffee, water and sodas.
Chairs, Sunscreen, and a Camera are great things to bring along onto the ship. Please keep in mind this is a working cargo ship so sensible shoes are a must.
Project Liberty Ship is dedicated to the preservation of the Liberty Ship S.S. JOHN W BROWN as a living memorial to the men and women who built the great Liberty Fleet and to the merchant seamen and U.S. Navy Armed Guard who sailed the ships across the oceans of the world.
The S.S. JOHN W BROWN is the last remaining troop transport from WWII and the last to have landed troops ashore as part of an amphibious landing. It is also the oldest remaining Liberty Ship in the world. It was built in and now is homeported in Baltimore. It is a museum and maritime education center open to all ages.
