The President and CEO of Philadelphia’s Independence Seaport Museum gave an illustrated talk detailing the history of the USS Olympia, which is preserved and can be visited at their waterfront museum. The Olympia was commissioned by the United States Navy in 1895, eventually gaining fame for its role in the victory at Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War. The ship was later chosen to bring the remains of the World War I Unknown Soldier home from France for internment at Arlington National Cemetery on Armistice Day, 1921. close
