French Tall Ship Hermione Featured on CBS Sunday Morning

by Lee Hernly, Editor

As we told you last month, this summer, visitors to Alexandria, Virginia, can explore an exact replica of the ship that brought the Marquis de Lafayette to George Washington with news of full French aid in 1780, helping turn the tide of the American Revolution.

French tall ship Hermione is currently sailing 3,819 miles across the Atlantic from France to the U.S. to commemorate Lafayette’s historic voyage before docking in Alexandria, the ship’s Washington, D.C. port of call and one of 12 iconic stops on its tour.

CBS News’ Mark Phillips is on board the L’Hermione (a.k.a ‘Freedom’s Frigate’) and filed this report (video) on this morning’s edition of CBS Sunday Morning.
