The National Maritime Historical Society
Invites NMHS Members to Join Us for
a Member Reception aboard Charles W. Morgan
June 4, 2014 6:00–7:30 pm
City Pier, 1 Waterfront Park, New London, Connecticut
Charles W. Morgan is setting sail in May 2014 to various ports of call throughout New England to celebrate America’s maritime heritage. The Morgan, a National Historic Landmark built in 1841 and restored to seaworthy status over the past five years, is the flagship of the watercraft collection at Mystic Seaport. Over an 80-year whaling career, the Morgan sailed on 37 voyages to the remote corners of the globe and is now America’s oldest commercial ship still afloat—only USS Constitution is older.
Now members and a guest can enjoy this extraordinary opportunity to board Charles W. Morgan at her first port of call. There will be below-deck tours, and guests should be dressed for exploring a historic ship with appropriate footwear. There is only an awning in case of rain; guests should be prepared for inclement weather, bringing a slicker, sweater, umbrella, etc.
We’ll see you on 4 June, rain or shine! Places are limited, so make your reservations today. We look forward to seeing you in New London!
