John Paul Jones' crypt on the Naval Academy grounds. Go to the chapel and walk around to the back on the west side where you will see the steps to the underground crypt.

Go out West Avenue to Bacon's...used sails and everything else nautical.

Go to Bancroft Hall on the Naval Academy grounds and go in the main entrance and walk up the steps in front of you into the Rotunda and Memorial Hall and read the history of USNA graduates in each of the nation's conflicts. Includes flags and pennants flown in major engagements and listings of graduates who were casualties from each class.

Walk through the USNA Cemetery and Columbarium near the Naval Hospital and pay respects to the famous and the unknown whose remains are there in the hill overlooking the Severn River.
