Tall Ship Gloria Fires Her Guns On The Old Town Alexandria Waterfront (Video)

With our readership up 181% at last check due to the immensely popular Columbian historic tall ship Gloria which I covered here, here, and here, why not another post on this massive ship? Don’t forget to check out Taylor Allen’s piece at Alexandria News on the welcoming of the ship to the Alexandria waterfront.

Thanks to reader Arva for the video which I have posted below showing the Gloria during her 19 gun salute to the City of Alexandria. I am very glad that she had some decent sounding guns on her compared to the Californian which I lamented about here. Arva has more videos of the Gloria’s arrival listed here at this link.

REMINDER: To find out more about the historic tall ship Gloria, has some history of the ship at this link.
