The schooner Hannah was the first armed American naval vessel of the American Revolution and is claimed to be the founding vessel of the United States Navy. She was owned by John Glover's in-law of Marblehead, Massachusetts with a crew drawn largely from that town. The schooner was hired into the service of the American Continental Army by General George Washington.
This was my very first Ship in a Bottle build. It took me one month and three weeks to complete and was a great deal of fun to build.
It is a very large file so grab a cup of coffee before you take a look. Return to this post and leave a comment if you have any questions.
