Warship Collection of Paintings

Admiral Dewey’s flagship brand new in 1885. The elaborate scroll work on her bow and stern was removed sometime before her famous action at Manila Bay in 1998 and shipped to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis where it can be seen today. Cruiser Olympia herself is docked and on display at Philadelphia Seaport Museum, the sole floating survivor of the US Navy’s Spanish-american War Fleet. Tours are available to the public.
