On Thursday, August 3 at 6p.m. Ships of the Sea Museum will present a FREE lecture with Dr. Thomas G. Anderson, Captain, USN, Ret. on the Jasper Ocean Terminal, a new container ship terminal being planned for the Port of Savannah. This terminal will be located near the mouth of the Savannah River and will have the capacity to serve the largest container ships in the world. When fully operational, this new terminal should put the Port of Savannah on track to become the busiest container port on the east coast of the United States. The lecture will be presented in the North Garden Assembly at Ships of the Sea Museum located at 41 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Captain Anderson has lived and worked in a maritime environment since hewasaayoungboyand after earning his PhD he accepted a commission in the United States Navy. His interest in maritime history, especially the influence of world events on the maritime environment, has lead him to conduct extraordinarily popular talks around the country. In a statement from Captain Anderson, he stated “I believe the maritime world has been extremely important in the history of our civilization. I believe that world is equally important to our global civilization and that it will be vitally important to our future, as well. That’s why I strongly believe in the value of educating ourselves, our fellow citizens, and especially our young people about the importance of the Maritime World.”
