The French 12-pounder frigate Hermione was famous for her support of America during the Revolutionary War. Her 1997-built replica is famous for being a gorgeously-built copy of an archetypal combatant during the Age of Sail.

It’s about time! Hat tip to Keep Turning Left’s Dylan Winter for finding this great video, and you can learn more here about the replica’s historic recreation of the voyage that brought Le General Lafayette to the rebellious USA.
