Charles W. Morgan Press Kit

The Charles W. Morgan is the last of an American whaling fleet that numbered more than 2,700 vessels. Built and launched in New Bedford, Mass. in 1841, the Morgan is now America’s oldest commercial ship still afloat – only the USS Constitution is older. The whaleship came to Mystic Seaport in November, 1941 and more than 20 million visitors have walked her decks since her arrival.
