Cadets from Army will face off with students from the Midshipmen from Navy during a Tug-of-War competition on the pier of the Battleship New Jersey on Friday, Dec. 8 at 3pm. Guests are welcome to attend the competition for free on the pier.
The Tug-of-War is part of the annual Patriot Games — a two-day, five-event competition between teams of Cadets and the Midshipmen that take place in various Philadelphia landmarks. Other events scheduled are a Rocky Relay, December 8 at 8:30am at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Leadership Reaction Course at the National Constitution Center at 10 AM, the Pull-Up Challenge, December 8 at noon at The Shops at Liberty Place; and the finale on Saturday, with the Stadium Obstacle Relay, December 9 at 1:15pm at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Patriot Games lead up to the annual Army vs Navy football game on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
Past Tug-of-Wars at the Battleship also featured both academies’ bands, spirit squads, mascots and even an Army tank!
Since the Battleship New Jersey will be closed indefinitely due to the coronavirus, the annual Vietnam War Living History Day, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4, has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule this event for later this year. However, that will depend on how long this crisis continues.
In the meantime, please stay inside and be safe.
On Saturday, August 1 on the hour from 11am to 3pm, a guest touring the Battleship will win the chance to pull the trigger of the portside saluting gun and render a salute to our great nation! We’ll announce the winner’s name over our 1MC (PA) system throughout the day. .
Or for a $50 donation, we’ll let you pull the trigger for your own salute whatever time you want on August 1.
The Battleship is open for tours from 10am to 3pm every day. Free parking along Clinton St.
