OpSail 2012 – New London

July 6, 2012 - July 8, 2012

OpSail2012In 2012, Operation Sail will once again bring the glory of tall ships to the American seaboard to celebrate the bicentennial of our nation anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner.

From August 9-12, 1814, British fleets attacked Stonington. Led by Sir Thomas Hardy, they destroyed many buildings but ultimately only caused a few casualties. If you go Stonington today, you can visit Canon Square and see the two canons used to repel the British in 1814.

Please visit the Opsail 2012 website to learn more.
