NEW YORK: A replica of a majestic 18th century tall ship that brought French General Lafayette to America arrived in New York Wednesday to take part in July 4 Independence Day festivities. The original three-masted Hermione brought the general to America to rally US rebels fighting for independence from Britain. The Hermione replica, which took almost two decades to build, left from France’s western coast on April 18 and retraced the 3,700-mile (6,000-kilometer) journey across the Atlantic.
