Sailing to the Shipyard, Keeping Her Alive - Saturday, October 4, 2014
Cruise Maryland Terminal: 2001 East McComas Street, Baltimore MD
Sail back into World War II aboard a national treasure. S.S. JOHN W. BROWN carries you back into wartime. You experience life aboard the last remaining troop ship from World War II. 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 a light breakfast, and sea rations (deli lunch).
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.
