Coast Guard Barque ‘Eagle’ in New London returns


NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH) — The barque eagle is back!

America’s tall ship returned to its home port in New London on Thursday.

The Coast Guard sailing vessel has been in Baltimore for nearly 5 years undergoing a massive refurbishment.

On Friday, the National Coast Guard Museum is hosting a ceremony to honor the eagle’s return.

The barque eagle has called New London home since 1946.
