L Hermione Frigate, Last Chance on Sunday June 7th, 2015 To See Her In Yorktown, VA

The L Hermione Frigate from France is here in Yorktown, Virginia for one more day.  If you have not come out to see this ship yet, you need to come out by Sunday, June 7th, 2015 to see her.  She is stunning.  This is a recreation of the ship that the Marquis de Lafayette came over to the Continental United States on.  She cost an astounding $36 Million to build and took about 20 years.  An amazing floating and sailing museum.  The crew are as nice as can be.  This is her maiden voyage from France and the first time she has ever been seen in the United States and we are the fortunate ones to see her first in the US.  

  That in and of itself is history.  So far we have over 1,500 photos of this ship that we will be getting online over the next few weeks.  Until then we have put up an initial 72 photos on Google Plus and Flickr.  Throughout historical Yorktown and the Riverwalk are a bunch of reenactors creating an atmosphere that simply should not be missed for anyone with even a passing interest in American history.
