Span-Am War MOH Sailor in 1/6
« on: October 14, 2018, 04:32:42 AM »
The latest addition to the 1/6 crew downstairs is Coxswain Benjamin Baker of Dennis, Massachusetts and the USS Nashville.  He was awarded the Medal of Honor for actions during the naval engagement at Cienfuegos, Cuba, in 1898, and is the only Cape Codder to have received the MOH.

Very nice once again Jean.

The maritime museum and associations in and around Cape Cod should reach out to you if they haven't already..

You would make a fine exhibit specialist
