Navy Week in Detroit
It's Navy Week in Detroit through September 9th in celebration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. Yesterday we heard the rousing Navy band play while the public was invited to tour two war ships. The US Brig Niagara is a replica of the actual one used in that battle on Lake Erie with Commodore Oliver Perry. When you go below deck, even shorties have to duck their heads! It has very cramped quarters. You can also board the USS De Wert, a navy frigate that is 453 feet long. They were both free of charge. Look for them in front of the GM Renaissance Center.
