sailing of the tall ships affected the development of America through diversity of peoples and their ideas and energies. This will include such vital aspects as the development of capital to build ships, transport people, disseminate ideas and create jobs and opportunity-a program we ' re now running in its second year in New York Harbor. • Classes for teachers with a similar curriculum that can be fed into school systems with vigorous encouragement and oversight, aiming always for the full historic experience in its challenging turbulence and unruly, creative variety. • A national essay contest for high school students on the fundamentals of the seafaring experience in which the tall ships sail. We believe developing one 's thoughts in writing·is a vital part of learning. A first version of this contest is being run this year, as reported on page 4. The Standard Bearer Our magazine-and it is ours , owned by the members-has a leading role to play in this historic venture. It's a venture that should benefit maritime heritage projects the length and breadth of the United States, from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Anchorage, Alaska. Sea History readers contribute across the board to maritime heritage projects, from saving the schooner Ernestina for her educational voyaging from New Bedford, Massachusetts, to helping secure the funding that enabled the Liberty ship Jeremiah O' Brien to steam from her home port of San Francisco to the DDay beaches in France three years ago-under the command of NMHS Trustee Admiral Tom Patterson. Together we do more than talk about history-we bring new interests to it, and fresh life. It would be hard to think of a single thing more helpful to the cause of history than a bigger, betterand much more widely read version of Sea History. And that's what we're aiming for, a Sea History grown up to its full stature, to make its full message and import felt in support of the cause we serve, the cause of the heritage of seafaring. We invite NMHS members and prospective members to join us in this venture in the service of that priceless, still under-recognized and under-valued heritage, the voyaging experience of mankind.
