“Hessen” came to Baltimore in June as part of an international maritime festival launching Maryland's three-year War of 1812 bicentennial commemorations. It was on June 18, 1812 that the young United States declared war on Great Britain.

Star-Spangled Sailabration June 13-19, 2012 in Baltimore's Inner Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay.

Dozens of Navy ships and tall ships from the U.S. and international navies lined Baltimore's harbor during the week, bringing thousands of sailors to the region. Additional activities will include free on-board public tours of ships, official visits by international dignitaries and Navy leadership, fireworks, crew sporting competitions, community service projects, living history displays, educational activities, a new symphonic work, a public art project, and much more. "We are looking forward to welcoming the international navies and tall sailing ships to Baltimore in June to launch the national bicentennial," said Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "Star-Spangled Sailabration will kick off the events building to the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore and penning of the national anthem in September 2014."

The “Hessen” is one of the newest and largest ships of the DEUTSCHE MARINE. Put into service in2006, she has a crew of about 250 sailors and officers. It will be berthed in North Locust Point, with shuttle bus service from the M&T stadium Parking Lot.

On Sunday June 17th 2012 in our historic Adlersaal, Zion hosted members of the Hessen’s crew, all members of the German-American community as well as our own congregation to a special service on what was also Father’s Day.
