    Naval History and Heritage Command

    Sailors from tenant commands at Naval Station Norfolk converged on the Hampton Roads Naval Museum’s H9 annex building earlier this week for a historical presentation about the Great White Fleet. The fleet, which included sixteen battleships and an armada of warships and support vessels, departed Sewells Point on December 16, 1907. Over 15,000 sailors were embarked aboard the warships, and they travelled over 43,000 nautical miles, made 20 ports of call at six continents over the course of 14 months. They returned to Norfolk on February 22, 1909. The annex building hosts its History at H9 presentations throughout the year for area commands on a variety of historical topics, and provides research assistance by appointment. To inquire, contact their registrar at Katherine.Renfrew@navy.mil or at (757) 445-6844. (US Navy Photo by Max Lonzanida/Released).
