The historic Charles W. Morgan whaling ship will be available for public viewing today and tomorrow in New London. The ship will be outfitted with a crew and some new equipment while docked in New London.
The Charles W. Morgan is the last ship afloat from America's whaling fleet, which roamed the globe from the mid-1800s until the early 1900s.
The Morgan's stop in New London is a part of a summer-long tour of historic New England seaports. "Where once the Morgan’s cargo was whale oil and baleen, today her cargo is knowledge," writes Mystic Seaport.
The public can also visit the Charles W. Morgan from May 31 to June 1 between the hours of 9am and 5pm.
The Day features a time lapse video of the Charles W. Morgan's journey to New London.
