Eye on Hermione
This summer, ports along the North American Atlantic coast have been host to France’s Hermione, replica of the frigate that carried the Marquis de Lafayette to aid the American colonies in their struggle for independence. From her first arrival in Yorktown, VA, to her final stop in Lunenburg, NS, Hermione and her crew were given an enthusiastic and warm welcome.
We’ve collected some of the many news clips about Hermione‘s visit here.
More about Hermione can be found at the Hermione 2015 website, as well as the ship’s home page.
