Notable ships of maritime history. The first of a new series of beautiful, annotated ship displays is the SS United States, the fastest passenger liner ever built. It is followed by the 1818 ship SS Savannah, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic. The series also includes the NS (nuclear ship) Savannah, the first nuclear passenger/cargo ship, and the Mayflower. Additional ships will include the Great Britain - the first iron-hulled screw-propeller passenger to ship across the Atlantic. Please feel free to nominate other ships of historical interest.
