Now this Games Day is important as it is done one the weekend closest to the anniversary of the Battle of Manila Bay on May 1st 1898. For those unaware this was the first battle in a war that propelled America to the world stage. Sort of important.
On this Games Day we were given a tour of the engineering spaces and that was a treat. I got a chance to climb into the coal bunkers and into the bilges. Not for the faint of heart. So these are the pictures of the USS Olympia and USS Becuna here in Philadelphia.
