AMERICAN MERCHANT MARINERS MEMORIAL—BATTERY PARK, NEW YORK
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
