Rated at 78 tons, the schooner was apparently built in Marblehead, Massachusetts about 1774. In 1775, owner John Glover of Beverley, MA retrofitted the ship under orders from General George Washington, and it became the first armed vessel of the thirteen colonies. Some historians mark this event as the beginning of the United States Navy.
It has been suggested that the Hannah and other small American schooners were critical in disrupting British marine supply lines into Boston during he winter of 1775. The British evacuated Boston in March of 1776.
This model is 1/4 inch scale and “scratch” built using boxwood, cherry, and walnut woods. Outside dimensions of the case: 9” W x 29” L x 25” H.
