Since 1946, the U. S. Coast Guard  has used the Barque Eagle for training their cadets and officer candidates. 
Over the years she has represented the United States of America at birthday and anniversary  celebrations of states and cities
not only in the United States, but all over the world.  She has led many tall ship parades and has acted as the U.S.A. ambassador
on numerous other occasions.  Built in Germany in 1936 as the Horst Wessel, Eagle was taken as war prize following
World War II.  Since then she has had a long distinguished career as "America's Tall Ship."
