New London U.S. Custom House Maritime Museum Photos

The New London U.S. Custom House (1833) designed by noted architect by Robert Mills is now the New London Maritime Museum. One notable display concerns the Slave ship Amistad, which slaves seized through rebellion (1841) before a U.S. cutter intercepted the ship at sea and docked it at New London. Resulting landmark American trials ruled that the slaves were free and could return to Africa.
