Summary

Caption from Torch: "This 13-foot model of the American Revolution period tobacco ship "Brilliant" is now on display in temporary quarters on the first floor of the [National] Museum of History and Technology. According to Melvin Jackson, MHT curator of maritime history, the model will reside permanently in the Museum's Hall of American Maritime History when it opens in 1977. The model, made for the Smithsonian by Charles and N. Davis Newcomb of Trappe, Md., is one-tenth the size of the original, and constructed of the same type of wood."
