Abstract

"What's in a Picture?" piece on a 1916 photograph of four U.S. Navy destroyers and a support ship at anchor between Eastport and Campobello Island, the summer home of then-Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt had amassed the flotilla, which included 18 other warships, to study the chances of using the harbor and its dramatically high tides as a training ground for deployment to a port with similar conditions in Scotland. Several of the ships were built at Bath Iron Works.
