Governor, Legislators to Announce “Year of the Charles W. Morgan

Historic whaling ship, oldest remaining of its kind, is a reminder of Connecticut’s proud maritime tradition


HARTFORD On Wednesday, April 18th at 12:30 PM, Governor Dannel P. Malloy, State Senator Andrew Maynard (D-Stonington), and Stephen C. White, President of Mystic Seaport, will join other legislators and state officials to declare the 2013 – 2014 academic year the “Year of the Charles W. Morgan” in the State of Connecticut.

In the summer of 2014, upon completion of a comprehensive restoration, the ship will depart Mystic Seaport for a tour of historic ports in the Northeast.

The “Year of the Charles W. Morgan” will afford students across the state a unique opportunity to learn about Connecticut’s past, the historic significance of the whaling industry, and the state’s ongoing maritime tradition.
