Organizer of JOHN W. BROWN ~ STEAM SCHOOL October

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.
