This World War II Liberty Ship made seven voyages, ranging from England and Northern Ireland to South America, to India, to Australia. She also made eleven crossings of the English Channel carrying personnel and supplies to the Normandy beaches in support of the D-Day invasion.
See memorials to Merchant Marine seamen, to their Navy gun crews, and to civilian men and women who built the largest single class of ships in history. View the diorama of Normandy beaches and photos of her return for the 50th Anniversary of Operation Overlord.
