The Warships of 1812

A great treasure for our nation and its Navy is the US Naval Academy Museum in Annapolis, MD.

Find an excuse to carve out at least an hour next time you are there, if for no other reason than to see its world class and unique collection of model ships.

They have done a great job educating on the War of 1812 that took place in their backyard.

Navalists should relish both.

I know not everyone finds themselves driving around Maryland, so for them - get a fresh cup of coffee, put the phone to voicemail and enjoy;
Grant Walker of the Naval Academy Museum explains the history and architecture of ships using the museum's original British dockyard model collection. This lecture was part of the museum's "War of 1812 & the Chesapeake: A School House at Sea."
