SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT NATIONAL MARITIME DAY

In 1933, Congress created National Maritime Day on May 22nd, to commemorate the first successful crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by a ship (SS. Savannah in 1819) powered by steam as well as to all seamen and innovations that have been made towards sea faring vessels.  The President of the U.S. has proclaimed that day to be National Maritime Day ever since.  The scope of the holiday expanded in 1945, when President Roosevelt also included the commemoration of the men and women of the American Merchant Marine who helped to support our troops in WWII where many were hurt, killed and taken prisoner.
