The original French frigate Hermione left France in 1781 carrying the Marquis de Lafayette with a promise of support for the American colonies against the British. More than 200 years later, the replica Hermione has left France for a new voyage to America in 2015. The ship will cruise up the American coast during this Summer and stop in Baltimore June 19-21. You won’t want to miss this special visit, so mark your calendar. We plan to sail with the ship when she comes to port.
