Olympia CL 15, ex-Cruiser 6
Becuna SS 319
Olympia was Dewey's flagship at Battle of Manila Bay in Spanish American War, and is the last ship left from the "new Navy" of the 1890s. Note that 8 in. turrets are fabrications, as originals were replaced with open 5" mounts during WWI. She is undergoing a major restoration, and needs more funding.
