13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Saluting L'Hermione la Fregate de la Liberté in Alexandria, VA

L'Hermione la Fregate de la Liberté arrived in Alexandria VA. I went to see the ship because my friend in Bordeaux, France saw it leave from his side of the Atlantic. I promised I would take a photo for him. So I did. When I told the American Revolution Soldier Actor my story, he was very happy to pose for my French friend. Mounted the bayonet on top of his rifle and stood at attention.
