American Merchant Mariner's Memorial
Battery Park, New York City.

Dedicated to all Merchant Mariners who have served America from the Revolutionary War through the present day. In the prosecution of war and in pursuit of peaceful commerce, unrecognized thousands have lost their lives at sea. Their sacrifices have helped secure America’s liberty and prosperity. This sculpture was inspired by a photograph of the victims of a submarine attack on an American merchant ship during World War II. Left to the perils of the sea, the survivors later perished. This memorial serves as a marker for America’s Merchant Mariners resting in the unmarked ocean depths.

Dedicated October 8, 1991

The S.S. Dorchester is best remembered due to the story of the "Four Chaplains". Four Army Chaplains, among the military personnel being transported overseas for duty, died because they gave up their life jackets to save others. These chaplains included:

George Lansing Fox ~ Methodist Minister, 1st Lt
Clark Vandersall Poling Reformed Church Minister, 1st Lt
John P. Washington ~ Catholic Priest, 1st Lt
Alexander B. Goode ~ Rabbi, 1st Lt
