L'Hermione Visit to Maryland
By Robert Reyes
The Maryland Society SAR participated in the visit of the L’Hermione visit to Annapolis and Baltimore and unveiled the SAR W3R Wayside Panels with Robert Reyes being instrumental in the organization of this grand event. Members of the Society toured the boat and participated in the dedication of wayside markers that will become part of a permanent display in the harbor area. This project has been ongoing with Maryland for over ten years and picked up speed with the visit of the French ship symbolizing Lafayette's involvement in the American Revolution. Soldiers in period dress were on display around the harbor.
